ASUU strike paralyses academic activities in UniAbuja

Academic activities have been paralysed in the University of Abuja following the two week warning strike embarked upon by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Our correspondent who visited the school reports that large number of students who turned out for lectures were not happy when they received the news of the strike.

Some 100 level students; Grace Bala and Emmanuel Gabriel, appealed to government and ASUU to resolve their differences in the best interest of the students.

Speaking to journalists after an emergency meeting of the union, the UniAbuja ASUU chairman, Dr. Umar Kasim, said the union has set up a monitoring committee to ensure total compliance within the two campuses of the university.

He blamed government' incessant failure to implement the previous agreement reached with the union since 2009.

"The congress we had is to domesticate the warning strike declared by the leadership of the national executive body of our union at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology.

"As you know the strike is about pressing home our needs concerning MoU 2012 and 2013 and MOA 2017 and 2018. Government is insensitive to our plight keep as there promising without implementation," he explained.
