The two month rollover strike declared in March 14, 2022 by ASUU ended today (May 9th), and it came after the the initial 4 weeks warning strike that started in February.

ASUU’s demands include the non-implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed with government in December 2020 on funding for revitalisation of public universities (both federal and states), renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ ASUU Agreement and the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
