According to information that just reached the desk of DANBUZU.com from Malam Mansur Isah Buhari of Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, there are strong indications that ASUU will continue with their strike by the middle of next week due to FGN’s inability to fulfil the promises it made in the Memorandum of Action between the union and FGN signed on the 17th of September this year. In the MoA, the FGN urged ASUU to suspend their strike with the promise of meeting all the demands contained (in the MoA) on or before the 31st of October. Barely 10 days to the deadline, these promises have yet to be fulfilled by the FGN.
Based on the development, ASUU members have resolved to automatically continue with their total, comprehensive and indefinite strike without any voting by the various chapters or declaration from the National body on the 1st of November should the MoA not be respected by the FGN, since that was the basis on which the strike was suspended.
It should be remembered that the strike was suspended, not called off in order to give the FGN the benefit of the doubt and as a show of goodwill to the efforts and commitment of the the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu.
