It made rounds on August 30th, 2022 that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Lagos branch, has suspended the ongoing strike.
Checks by STECHITEGIST MEDIA confirms that this is false as the Chairperson of the branch, Dele Ashiru described it as fake news.
“The attention of the leadership of ASUU-UNILAG has been drawn to a fake and dubious news purporting that ‘ASUU-UNILAG chapter gives up for the first time, votes for suspension of strike.’
“This is to inform the general public that the strike in UNILAG is still in force and there is no threat to it whatsoever.
“ASUU-UNILAG is convinced that the strike action is a just and patriotic struggle to save the public university system in Nigeria from imminent collapse.”
The branch reassured its members that their cause was a just cause, saying, “our members should be rest assured that just as darkness cannot overshadow light, evil can never triumph over good. Our cause is just. Dare to struggle! Dare to win!”
ASUU had on Monday further declared an indefinite strike action after its National Executive Meeting.
The Union had begun strike since February 14, 2022, rendering all academic activities in public universities paralysed over what it described as the failure of the Federal Government to meet its demands, which included revitalisation of the university system, issues of payment system, and welfare of lectures among others.
University Of Lagos (UNILAG) ASUU has not called off the strike, STECHITE GIST MEDIA can confirm.
