The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) has accused the Federal Government of being notorious for breaching mutual agreements, and, hence, directed its members to get ready for a strike that could be declared anytime from now.
Speaking with newsmen after the congress, Professor Omole lamented that despite its efforts to make Nigeria great through education, successive administration have positioned themselves to make Nigeria retrogressive.
Omole said, “Government is untrustworthy, they are paying lip service to everything including education. Things are going worse than before. Their policies are ill-conceived hence creating more problems than they can solve. Our members are being mobilized, they should be at alert. This Government is wicked.
“They are impoverishing lecturers. With meager amount being paid, some departments now beg lecturers to donate paper to run government business. IPPIS is a distraction. They should honour our agreements to avert the strike.”
