Nationwide strike: ASUU joins NLC, TUC

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has directed its members to join the nationwide strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC).

The ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke directed compliance in a letter to ASUU zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons across the country.

NLC had on Monday announced the commencement of the industrial action from midnight of Monday, 13t November.

The action of the unions followed the brutalisation of the NLC National President, Joe Ajaero, on 1 November in Imo State.

“As an affiliate of NLC, all members of our union are hereby directed to join this action of NLC to protect the interest of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the union. Zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons should immediately mobilise our members to participate in the action,” Mr Osodeke wrote in the letter.
