The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has given the Federal Government a three-week ultimatum to implement the demands contained in the Memorandum of Action (MoA), signed by both parties on December 23, 2020.
ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, while addressing a press conference at the University of Abuja on Monday, declared that the government failure to comply with the agreement would leave the Union with no other choice than to embark on another strike.
He said: “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.”
Last year, the Federal Government promised that it would fulfill the demands of the Union which include, payment of earned allowances, introduction of the UTAS platform for University workers, payment of revitalization fund for Universities among others.
The agreement made ASUU to suspend its Industrial action which lasted for over nine months in 2020.
