Strike: FG Gives ASUU One Week Ultimatum

Nov. 28, 2013

This is sad though. Acting Minister for Education, Nyesom Wikeh held a press briefing in Abuja today and he ordered ASUU to call of the strike within one week or the Federal Government will take forceful actions.

He also said any academic staff who fails to resume latest December 4th will cease to be a staff of the institution. Pro-chancellors of universities and the National Universities Commissions (NUC) were ordered to ensure compliance.

According to the directive, the Vice Chancellors have been mandated to advertise the positions should the lecturers fail to resume duties at the time of the deadline. –DailyTimes
