ASSU Suspends Nine Months Old Strike With Conditions!


The Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASSU) has suspended its nationwide industrial action on Wednesday 23rd December 2020. This has led to congratulatory hugs and jubilations among students across the nation have spent many months at home following the ASSU's toughness on the federal government.

However, the body under the President of the Union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi has given conditions for lecturers to resume classes.

He said that members of the union would not return to classes until President Mohammadu Buhari provide a conducive teaching environment in line with COVID-19 protocols. He said this after announcing an end to the nine months old strike which shook the tertiary institutions.

Professor Biodun Ogunyemi said, "We usually said we did not close the universities, the government remains the owner of the universities, be it state or Federal".

As far as we are concerned, we are ready to resume classes. But the government should make the environment conducive for us to work within the context of the emerging trend of COVID-19.

So, we can't tell the government not to open but we have the right to insist that the COVID-19 protocols should be observed and the requirements for observing the protocols should be met."

 Congratulations to all affected students, and may the souls of those who lost their lives within that span of time, rest in perfect peace, amen.

"On your marks", is the position now!
