We Can go on Strike Anytime ― ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has said its members can embark on strike anytime, as the Federal Government is reneging on its promise to implement the Memorandum of Action (MoA), the two parties signed last December.

Briefing the press in Lagos on Tuesday, the Lagos Zonal Coordinator, Dr Adelaja Odukoya, also accused the government of trying to cripple the union by withholding check-off dues of members for over a year.

He said the dues ran into millions of naira and that the act was perpetrated by the government through the controversial Integrated Personnel Payroll and Information System (IPPIS).

Odukoya, who was in the company of union leaders from various universities in the zone, said the union had given the government a rope long enough for the government to hang itself on the matter.
