ASUU Threatens Nationwide Strike Over Unmet Demands

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned of a potential nationwide strike unless the federal government addresses its demands within two weeks.
This ultimatum was announced by the President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, during a press conference at the union’s national headquarters in Abuja.
Professor Osodeke criticized the government for its failure to appoint new governing councils for federal universities after dissolving the previous ones in May last year.
“The government needs to be accountable to the people for every decision it makes,” Osodeke stated.
Additionally, ASUU expressed dissatisfaction with the recent salary increments—35% for professors and 25% for other academic staff—implemented by the administration of President Bola Tinubu. The union argued that these wage adjustments are insufficient and insecure, as they can be revoked by the government at any time.
ASUU accused the current administration of having a nonchalant attitude towards the academic sector, which has exacerbated the union’s grievances.
