    Nigerian universities are set to be thrown back to the era of crisis following the decision of the lecturers to embark on strike.

    The university lecturers, under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), stated that the warning industrial action will commence on Sunday, 2nd of October, 2016, if the federal government fails to honour its agreements.

    Speaking to the media, the ASUU Chairman, University of Abuja Chapter, Dr Ben Ugheoke, said that all efforts by the union to get the FG to honour the agreements signed years ago proved abortive.

    He stressed that the strike will last for one week and if the government fails to give the lecturers a listening ear, then they will proceed on an indefinite strike come November 2016.

    It will be recalled that ASUU in a recent conference stated that the Federal Government owes lecturers N124bn as earned academic allowances from 2013 to 2016, aside another N495bn that had also accumulated as arrears.
