ASUU Strike

ASUU commenced a two-week warning strike on Wednesday, November 16, in protest of the Federal Government’s refusal to implement the 2009 Memorandum of Understanding with the Union among other issues.

Eyang told Vanguard on Thursday in Calabar that the stand was for the interest of education which has been subjected to untold neglect by successive governments in the country.

He added that it is regrettable that it got to this point but the reason is for the government to do the needful, he stressed that if the issue is not resolved, they will not surrender even if it means embarking on a total and indefinite strike for 5 years.
