A Month warning strike has been voted by National Executive Council, NEC, of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.
This warning strike was due to their demand which government refused to grant since when they have been asking.
Some of their demands are:
- 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 etc
“We just want to give the government a long rope hoping that it would see the need to avoid a total paralysis of academic activities in the nation’s universities. We are parents too and have our children in the system but we cannot watch and allow the total collapse of education in the country.
“Our agitation is in the interest of all and if the system is made better, we will all enjoy it. Prominent personalities in the country have waded into the matter but the government seems recalcitrant. Our National President would explain more when he briefs the press later today,”
