THE Academic Staff Union of Universities has extended its ongoing strike by four weeks.

The Union said this was to give the Federal Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all outstanding issues.

This position was taken at the end of the Union’s National Executive Council meeting, in Abuja on Sunday.

“Following extensive deliberations and taking cognisance of Government’s past failures to abide by its own timelines in addressing issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MOA), NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.

“The role-over strike action is with effect from 12.01am on Monday, 1st August, 2022,” ASUU said in a statement signed by its President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke.
