The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU), University of Lagos Chapter, has ensured total compliance with the strike directive given by the union’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

This was disclosed by Mr Dele Ashiru, the chairman of the chapter during an interview with journalists in Lagos on Wednesday.

According to him, the compliance is in line with the congress meeting held on Tuesday with members of the chapter.

He said; “We have achieved 100 per cent compliance with the directive handed to us by the union’s executives.”

It would be recalled the union’s NEC declared a nationwide indefinite strike during a meeting at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo state, on Sunday.

The union is protesting poor funding of public universities, non-implementation of the 2009 agreement it entered into with the Federal Government.

It is also protesting alleged government plans to introduce increased tuition fees and an education bank.
