ASUU Threatens To Embark On Indefinite Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU), has threatened to go on strike again over the ‘blatant’ refusal of the Accountant General of the Federation, Mr Ahmed Idris to pay the salaries and remittance of check-off dues of over 1000 staff for 13 months.

The ASUU chairman, University of Jos, Dr. Lazarus Maigoro, who raised the alarm in a press statement made available to reporters in Jos, accused the AGF of fanning the ember of discord between the federal government and the Union, which may lead to another round of strike action that may spell doom for the education sector.

Maigoro, however, called on the federal government to prevail on the AGF to prevent any rift that may lead to the immediate closure of university gates across the country.
