The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Sunday, November 4, announced that it has began an indefinite strike nationwide.

The body which comprises of most universities in the country said the action was made following government's inability of the Federal Government to respond to their demands.

ASUU said its strike would be total as all federal and state varsities would join the strike.

According to Punch, the union accused the federal government of not implementing the Memorandum of Action signed with it.

“Having waited patiently for action and meaningful negotiation with reasonable men using the principle of collective bargaining that ASUU at its NEC meeting of 3rd and 4th November 2018 at the FUTA, resolved to resume the nationwide strike action it suspended in September 2017 with immediate effect."

“This strike will be total, comprehensive and indefinite. Our members shall withdraw their services until government fully implement all outstanding issues as contained in the MOA of 2017, and concludes the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements.

“We have today (Sunday) been subjected to 20 years of continued re-colonisation under alleged democracy in which all that the ruling circle have been regrouping among themselves in their various faction they called political parties," Ogunyemi said.
