There is little hope that students might return to classes, as the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has now embarked on an indefinite strike.
ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, confirmed this in a statement.
Osodeke said the federal government engaged ASUU in fruitless and unending negotiation without a display of utmost fidelity.
“In view of the foregoing, and following extensive deliberations on government’s response to the resolution of 14th February 2022, so far, NEC concluded that the demands of the union had not been satisfactorily addressed.
“Consequently, NEC resolved to transmute the roll-over strike to a comprehensive, total, and indefinite strike action beginning from 12.01am Monday 29th August 2022,” the statement read in part.
It added that: “NEC acknowledges with appreciation past and current efforts by eminent Nigerians and groups to mediate in the lingering crisis. Our union remains open to reasonable engagements as we have always done.”
