The National President of the Asuu Mr Biodun Ogunyemi made the announcement after ASUU National Executive Council meeting which held in Enugu some few hours ago.

How long is the Asuu strike going to Last
This is a Warning strike, and According to Asuu it will last for about two weeks, and after two week and nothing is being done to pay those Lecturers being owed by the Government then they will embark on an indefinite strike, till they needs is being met.
So from today Till in two weeks time the Universities across the federation will remain shutdown, Asuu is not in Support of the IPPIS System, so that is exactly what the group is fighting against, Asuu is fighting so that the federal government will not implement the IPPIS system in their payment system.
IPPIS was born in order to checkmate Lecturers and the federal government has equally gone tough by insisting that any Lecturer who refuses to Register with IPPIS system will not be paid, According to our findings some Lecturers across the federation have registered and have been paid while some do not want to register and they have not been paid, And those have not registered are fighting to Abolish the IPPIS payment system from Asuu members.
We shall follow up the story closely and we will keep you posted as it is happening, Please kindly leave a comment below and tell us what you think about this federal government and Asuu Beef.
