ASUU Commences 4 Weeks Strike Over Nigerian Govt's Failure To Implement MOA

How will Universities churn out graduates like this?

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Monday, February 14, declared a four-week “total and comprehensive” strike.

The strike which was announced by ASUU President Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, at a news conference in Lagos takes effect from Monday, Feb. 14, 2022, and would last for an initial period of four weeks.

He said: “NEC resolved to embark on the four-week roll-over total and comprehensive strike as the government has failed to implement the Memorandum of Action it signed with the ASUU in December 2020.”

He said the union also resolved to embark on the strike over the forceful payment of ASUU members’ salaries and emoluments with the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

According to him, the non-adoption of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution(UTAS) has continued to shortchange the union members.
Osodeke said the union loathed disruption of academic activities and was not insensitive to concerns of stable academic calendar in public universities.

He, however, sought the understanding and support of stakeholders to make the government more responsive to issues of health and education.

“We invite all lovers of education to join our struggle for a greater Nigeria. Nigerian politicians keep proliferating educational institutions without prioritising education.

“ASUU will not relent in its historic responsibility of advocating for an improved university system.

“This is because it holds the key to our collective prosperity and better future for our children and our children’s children; so, let us work together to fix it,’’ Osodere said.

According to 1st News , ASUU had expressed grievances over the failure of the Federal Government to fulfil some of the agreements it made with the union in 2009.

The union on Nov. 15, 2021, had given the Federal Government a three-week ultimatum over the failure to meet the demands.


  1. They should solve this problem once and for all . Its comes up every year. Why am I thinking that they want to privatise universities ? 🤷‍♀️

  2. Must be experience this every year.....

  3. My dad retired from a federal university and has not received shishi for over a year. Everyday come for this verification or that.

  4. The government officials keep looting the Treasury neglecting what is suppose to be done.

    They have made a mockery of the educational system in Nigeria.

  5. They should just solve this issue, every year strike abeg make government settle them

  6. ASUU should let their greiviance known through another means aside Strike action, too much of strike weakens the union and government should please do the needful.

    Imagine a whole Prof. In some federal university is not collecting up to #500k and those that have retired are being owe and treated unfairly.

    The Government is not encouraging tge Educational Sector which is disheartening. Imagine Teachers and Lecturers that made other professions collecting peanut.

  7. This one no good o.
    When will this ASSU & GOVT issue end?

  8. It is so sad that the students keep going off and on due to fault(s) that is not their making. My advice is that every Nigerian Youth should be seriously involved in electioneering process, so that you can select the leaders that will serve you better. Most of our students/youths do not have voters card, while some keep saying "my votes will not count". If you fail to participate in choosing the leaders, whosoever emerges automatically becomes your choice.

  9. The foolish mind of those that rule this country. They know fixing Nigeria university system will generate revenue and make them independent but no, they will prefer to go against the agreement to keep every student and parents hostage. Just like the devil.

    Do these senseless folks know how much Ukraine, India, Ghana, Belarus and other countries make from Nigerians that study there? Not to mention the western world? Why can't this be fixed once and for all? Or buying and changing SUVs for themselves and going in useless convoy of cars better than fixing education?

    Just it is better for them to import fuel than to fix our refineries. Is Nigeria coursed? From IBB popularising the word TAM, Turn Around Maintenance,
    and wasting billions to where we are now. If the country is too big to manage why don't we break it into regions to meet aspirations of the majority?

    Just tired of the bad news coming from Nigeria every minute.

  10. 4 weeks of strike falls when it's time for NUGA...Dem never serious

  11. E don happen.
