ASUU Announces Lecture-Free Day As It Gets Set To Shut Down Nigeria Public Universities

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said that the possibility of shutting down all public universities over the inability of the Federal Government to implement agreements the two parties entered into in December 2020, which led to the suspension of a nine-month prolonged strike.

The national leadership of the union directed its members nationwide to declare lecture-free day on Monday, February 7, in preparation for a possible showdown with the Nigerian government.

ASUU National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osedeke, said the lecture-free day today will enable members to have urgent meetings.

He complained that the Federal Government ignored the implementation of some agreements the two parties entered into in 2020.

He went further saying that if the FG fails to do the needful, an indefinite strike would be inevitable.

Multiple circulars issued by the various branches of the union announcing the decision noted that the lecture-free day will be used to sensitize the university communities and the general public on the failure of the government to honour an agreement the parties entered into in December 2020, and which led to the suspension of a nine-month prolonged strike then.
