Majority of ASUU members vote for strike to continue

A large majority of the members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have voted for the continuation of the ongoing nationwide strike.

The official twitter page of ASUU has announced the outcome of the referendum held amongst the various chapters of the union to determine the continuance or end of the strike. 

The statement read:

“Result at the zonal congress showed that majority of the members voted for the continuation of the strike because they doubted Government’s sincerity in fulfilling its new promises”

At a referendum held at the Oyo State chapter of the Union, in Ibadan, 200 members voted in agreement, while only 50 people voted to end the strike.

The union is demanding N50billion but the FG released only N25billion, saying it does not have N50billion.

Speaking after the last meeting, Chris Ngige, Minister for Labour and Employment said, “We have met it halfway. We have offered what we have; we don’t have N50 billion.”
