Written by miebaka ikiriko on September 15, 2021
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said its members would embark on strike anytime from now, as the Federal Government is reneging on its promise to implement the Memorandum of Action, MOA, the two parties signed last December.
Briefing Newsmen in Lagos the Lagos Zonal Coordinator, Dr Adelaja Odukoya also accused the government of trying to cripple the Union by withholding check-off dues of members for over a year.
He said the dues ran into millions of Naira and the act was perpetrated by the government through the controversial Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System.
Dr Odukayo, who was in company of Union Leaders from various Universities in the Zone, said the Union had given the government a enough time to fulfil its promise.
