ASUU Meets Today, Takes Final Decision On Strike Sunday

The National Executive Committee of the Academic Staff Union of Universities will commence a two-day meeting at the University of Lagos, Akoka, today, to finalize the union’s decision on an impending strike.

A final decision on the looming strike will be reached this weekend as ASUU NEC meets from February 12 (today) and February 13, in UNILAG.

Another NEC told Saturday PUNCH that the decision on strike would be put to voting, and all the members present would vote either for — or against it.

He said, “The president of our union is not the one to decide on the strike. Also, none of the officers is expected to unilaterally decide on it. The issues at stake are to be tabled and debated at the meeting.

“Then, all the NEC members will vote either for — or against the strike. Whatever we decide on Sunday would form the next line of action.”

Asked if there were enough grounds for the lecturers to go on strike, the source answered in the affirmative.

“Yes, we have even started the strike earlier than now. But as parents, we have been waiting for the government to yield the ground, and fulfil the agreements it voluntarily entered with us,” the source added.

Efforts to reach Adamu proved abortive as he neither picked calls nor replied to a text message sent to his phone number.

But Nwajiuba declined to comment on the union’s meeting, where the ultimate decision on the impending strike would be taken.
