ASUU Strike Update:- BUK Kano, UI, ABSU, ATBU Others Voted To Continue Strike

Academic staff union of universities (ASUU) has earlier ordered it’s branches to present a report to the members on the outcome of it’s meeting with government. ASUU also charge its members conduct a referendum on whether to
a. Suspend the strike
b. Continue With the strike
c. Review and improve the proposal before submission

After much deliberations the striking lecturers of Bayero University Kano (BUK) have voted overwhelmingly to continue the strike.
One of the lecturers wrote on his Facebook page

“Today we took referendum on whether to call off the ongoing strike base on the government offer of 23 billion to settle some part of our EAA. We vehemently rejected the offer on the ground that we are not only fighting because of our personal aggrandizement but for the betterment of the university education in Nigeria. We insisted that the earlier agreement of injecting 200 billion naira annually to finance critical infrastructure in our universities be implemented as well as the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement and the 2013 ASUU-FGN MoU be respected.”
