ASUU has been demanding for the payment of Earned Academic Allowance, revitalization fund, the replacement of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS, with the University Transparency and Accountability System UTAS, but the federal government has been negotiating with the group.
Nigerians on social media (Twitter) have reacted to the recent development that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, may go on one month strike to press home its demands.
Miffed with the recent development, a twitter user, Ojone @ojonegon in a riposte said that he was supposed to have graduated from the university, but because of strikes he is still not in his final year.
Another person tweeted;
“Ojone @ojonegon: I was supposed to graduate this year but somehow I’m still not in my final year and ASUU is going on strike. FML”
However, as Nigerians join the world to celebrate saint Valentine, one Phienhert @afrexdanlami1 humorously accused ASUU of intentionally going on strike to give Nigerian students the freedom to celebrate Valentine. His words: “ASUU DON GIVE ALL NIGERIAN STUDENTS THEIR VALENTINE GIFT…. ONE WHOLE MONTH NO BE WARNING AGAIN…”
