Academic Staff Union of Universities, on Monday, declared a total and indefinite strike over failure of Federal Government to keep to the 2019 Memorandum of Action and over the lingering crisis on the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

The union’s National President, Mr Biodun Ogunyemi, announced the strike at a  briefing in its National Secretariat, Abuja, noting that the strike was decided by its National Executive Council after an emergency meeting.

The union had begun a two-week warning strike on March 9 and the action elapsed on Monday, which had now led the university lecturers to a full-blown strike.

Ogunyemi said the union expected the Federal Government to address its issues during the warning strike but that did not happen.
