The Academic Staff Union of Universities has given the Federal Government of Nigeria an ultimatum of three weeks over failure to fulfill lingering demands.
The ultimatum was issued after the Senior Staff Association of Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities met today at the University of Abuja.
The National President of the Union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, who spoke after the meeting, lamented the failure of the Federal Government to attend to the needs of the union.
“We are giving the Federal Government a three-week ultimatum, if after three weeks they don’t meet our demands, we will be going on strike.
“We believe we have tried enough by giving them enough time.”
The Federal Government had signed a memorandum of understanding with ASUU last year.
The government promised to fulfill demands ranging from payment of earned allowances, the introduction of the UTAS platform for University workers, payment of revitalization fund for Universities among others.
