The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has gone on a ‘total and indefinite strike’ over the current state of universities in Nigeria.
This is after ASUU ordered its members across the country to embark on the industrial action.
The National President of ASUU, Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi, told reporters that the union took the decision after a meeting of the leaders due to the poor funding of universities in the country.
The meeting of leaders of ASUU held on Sunday at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, the Ondo State capital.
Prof. Ogunyemi directed all members of the union across various universities to withdraw their services, stressing that the strike would be total and indefinite.
