The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has embarked on the nationwide indefinite strike declared by the organized labour.
ASUU on Monday, Nov. 13, directed its members to join the strike starting from midnight of the same day.
The announcement was made in a circular to ASUU’s zonal coordinators and chairpersons, signed by Emmanuel Osodeke, National President of the Union.
“As an affiliate of NLC, all members of our union are hereby directed to join this action of NLC to protect the interests of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the union.
“Zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons should immediately mobilise our members to participate in the action.”
Recall that NLC and the TUC had written to their affiliates, directing them to join the planned nationwide strike scheduled to begin at midnight on Monday, Nov. 13.
This is aimed at protesting the assault on the NLC President, Joe Ajaero, allegedly by the Nigerian police and the Imo State government.
