• ASUU Warns Of Indefinite Strike.

    As a week nationwide warning strike by university lecturers ends on Tuesday, the teachers are threatening to go on an indefinite strike if their demands are not met.

    This was disclosed by the ASUU Chairman of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) Chapter, Dr Ifeanyi Abada.

    He said that the chapter complied fully with the warning strike directive.

    “The National Executive Committee (NEC) made efforts to resolve this issue with the government but government remained unyielding.

    “The strike compliance in UNN is total, no lectures, no examinations, no departmental and faculty meetings, as members will not participate.

    “UNN chapter will not renege on the directive of the national body until government addresses all the issues raised,” he said.

    According to Abada, among the demands of ASUU is that universities be exempted from the Treasury Single Account (TSA) policy.

    He noted that ASUU was also demanding Federal Government implementation of an agreement it entered into with ASUU in 2009. (NAN)
