Following its second deadlocked meeting with the Federal Government representatives on Tuesday, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has told its members to brace for a long strike.

This was made known by the union’s National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi in a bulletin obtained by newsmen in Ibadan on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.

Ogunyemi enjoined ASUU members “to be on the watch and prepare for a long, drawn out struggle to salvage the University System.”

He also encouraged the union members to be “resolute in the face of intimidation or antics employed by the government through Vice-Chancellors and governing councils to undermine the ongoing struggle.”

“Government is yet to change its “keep them talking” style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU,” he added.
