Just In: ASUU Joins NLC And TUC, Declares Nationwide Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has joined the nationwide indefinite strike declared by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC).

On Monday, Nov. 13, ASUU ordered its members to join the strike starting at 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.

The statement read, “As an affiliate of the NLC, all members of our union are hereby directed to join this action of the NLC to protect the interests of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the union.

“Zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons should immediately mobilize 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.
