The Academic Staff Union of Universities has urged its chapters across the country to sensitise members of the public on the situation between the union and the Federal Government. This is as it declared Monday, February 7, 2022, as a lecture-free day in a bid to enhance the sensitisation.
There are indications that the National Executive Council of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will meet on February 14 to review the implementation of some components of the agreement and decide on industrial action.
The National President of the Union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen.
Prof Osodeke clarified that the union had not yet declared a strike but would be sensitising the public, which includes the media, on the state of affairs between the union and the Federal Government.
The directive to the chapters of ASUU comes less than a week after the President, Muhammadu Buhari pledged the commitment of his administration to fulfilling the agreement with the union.
