Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), said it will adhere to the contents of the 2019 Memorandum of Action
(MoA) agreed upon by the union and the Federal Government.
ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, made this known in Abuja,while reacting to a statement circulating on the social media regarding ASUU’s plan to embark on another strike.
ASUU and Government had earlier reached an agreement on Feb. 7 and the Union suspended its three months strike on Feb. 8, after resolving eight areas of disagreement.
Ogunyemi, however, said that if Government failed to keep to its own part of the agreement as reflected in the 2019 MoA, ASUU would resume its suspended strike as the union deemed fit.
He added that, the members of the Union are concerned, and are activating the Memorandum of Action by engaging the Federal Government to keep to their promises. He said, Some of the agreements are already coming up, but some are still pending with respect to our Memorandum of Action and we will continue to do that and there is no continuation of any strike action for now.
He stressed that, they are concerned about the plight of students and have gone back to intensify efforts to cover lost grounds. Saying that members have sacrificed their annual leave and those who are supposed to go on sabbatical, have put on hold their sabbatical leave.
Meanwhile if the government responds positively to our demand we will not go any extra mile to put down the system, our interest is to build the system and we have always done that.
