ASUU strike: BUK lecturers join action, give reasons

More universities have continued to join the ongoing strike by the
Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, with the latest being
Bayero University, Kano, BUK.

The BUK chapter of ASUU joined the ongoing industrial action on Wednesday.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, in Kano, the ASUU BUK
branch Chairman, Ibrahim Barde said the industrial action which
started around 2pm on Wednesday, would continue indefinitely until all
the demands of the union were met.

He disclosed that the decision to go on strike was due to the failure
of the Federal Government to implement some of the agreements it
signed with the union since 2009.

According to Barde, "We have commenced the indefinite strike as
directed by the national body of ASUU."

"We have also decided to go on the strike because the government did
not also meet our demands on the Memorandum of Action signed between
the two parties."
