The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has ordered its members across the country to commence an indefinite industrial action.
This decision followed a meeting of leaders of the union on Sunday at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, the Ondo State capital.
The National President of ASUU, Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi, told reporters that the union took the decision due to the poor funding of universities in the country.
This strike, which has become a sort of yearly occurrence, affects all universities in the nation who are members of this association and at such halts all academic and related activities.
The federal government has responded to this by saying that they can’t meet the demands of the union.
So far, there has been compliance on the ongoing strike from several universities with refusal to join stemming from a select few.
