UNILORIN ASUU Mobilises For Strike, Declares Work-free Day

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) branch, has declared February 9 as a work-free day in order to mobilise for the impending strike notice served by its national secretariat.

This is contained in a statement signed by Ajao Moyosore, UNILORIN ASUU branch chairman on Wednesday in Ilorin.

“Wednesday, the 9th day of February, is declared a work-free day for all members of the union in the branch and that no member will take on any official assignment for the day.

“The branch will utilise the work-free day to further mobilise and sensitise the public about the justification of the proposed action.

“It is also to implore the Nigerian government to be responsible, do the needful, and avoid a situation whereby Nigerian universities will be closed down again,” the statement read in part.

Mr Moyosore explained that the action taken stemmed from the congress of the branch’s resolution, with respect to government attitude towards their salaries and allowances renegotiation and adoption of University Transparency, Accountability Solution (UTAS).

The chairman, therefore, appealed to the federal government to sign and implement the renegotiated conditions of service (salary increment) for university lecturers.

ASUU had last week said it would soon embark on an indefinite strike to press home its demands one month after it suspended a nine-month-old strike.
