The Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU), has not issued a strike notice to the federal government, says the University of Abuja chapter of the association.
Ben Ugheoke, chairman of UniAbuja ASUU, on Tuesday, denied stating that universities will proceed on strike on October 2.
In a statement issued in Abuja, Ugheoke said: “My attention has been drawn to a publication online and on social media captioned- ASUU: union to begin strike October 2nd.
“The story is said to have been authored originally by Press Team of University of Abuja. The general public and ASUU National Executive Council (NEC) should know and note that no one came, either as journalist or any Press Team to interview me.
“I hereby denounce such a publication as the work of mischief makers, targeted at misleading the unsuspecting public about the trajectory of the struggles of ASUU that are aimed at revitalising the university and indeed the education system of Nigeria.
“ASUU is committed to revitalising the University of Abuja and indeed, the education system of Nigeria.”
