Mr. Osodeke outlined the union’s main requests, including releasing the revitalization fund, accepting the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), and renegotiating the 2009 agreement.
The strike, so far,
On February 14, ASUU went on strike, calling for several items, including the deployment of UTAS to replace IPPIS and the adoption of the 2009 renegotiated agreement, which sets down the terms of service for its members.
The union has continued to extend the first four-week strike due to the failure to agree with the administration. The strike has now been ongoing for over six months.
In two weeks, the most recent extension from August 1 expires.
