There are reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is set to likely declare an indefinite strike during its upcoming National Executive Council (NEC) meeting over the inability of the Federal Government to meet its demands.
Unconfirmed reports alleges that none of the ASUU branches that have held their congresses voted for the suspension of the industrial action, noting that it is either they voted for another rollover of an indefinite strike.
According to the Nation, most of the over 123 branches of the union have completed their congresses while others are expected to round off their today (Wednesday).
A final decision on whether to call off the strike or extend it will be reached at NEC Meeting next week.
An ASUU leader who wished to remain anonymous said a proposal for the indefinite strike would be ratified and adopted at the NEC meeting of ASUU scheduled for Sunday.
He said, “None of the branches, including the University of Abuja, voted for anything other than an indefinite strike.
“All the branches of ASUU are expected to finish their congresses tomorrow (today) and pass their report to NEC.
“NEC will have to meet and review the decisions of all of the branches and decide on what to do.”
