The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it will discuss when to embark on its planned strike at its next meeting.


In the last four months, ASUU had consistently threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if the federal government fails to fulfill its agreement with the union.

Several meetings between the government and executives of the body during the period have not produced the desired results, with the union still insisting on strike.

Amid the lingering face-off between both parties, some reports had claimed that the union is billed to hold a meeting on February 14 to decide the date for its next strike.


Speaking with TheCable Lifestyle on Monday, Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU national president, said no date has been fixed for the meeting.

“Yes, we’ll be meeting soon but not on February 14 as some claimed. No date yet, we’ll let the public know,” he said.

“The next meeting is a normal one but when to go on strike will be one of the issues to be discussed.”


President Muhammadu Buhari had recently assured that his administration would honour its agreements with the union to prevent incessant strikes in the education sector.

“My administration is committed to this engagement and dialogue, and I urge them to stay the course towards a joint resolution in the best interest of our children and nation,” he had said.
