Members of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) Chapter on Thursday joined the ongoing nationwide strike declared by the national body of the union.

The chapter’s chairman, Dr Ifeanyichukwu Abada, told NAN that lecturers withdrew their services after ASUU-UNN congress held on Tuesday.

Abada said academic activities have been stopped at both the UNN and University of Nigeria Enugu Campus (UNEC) until further notice.

“Lecturers in UNN and UNEC have joined the indefinite nationwide strike declared by ASUU national body during the national executives meeting.

“On Tuesday, after holding a congress of the union in Nsukka Main Campus, we went to UNEC to do the same.

“Therefore, members have been briefed on reasons for the strike and were directed to proceed on indefinite strike till further notice.

“We have set up a monitoring team both In Nsukka and Enugu campus to ensure total compliance as well as to ensure that defaulting members are punished.

“The strike is total and comprehensive until Federal government meets ASUU demands,” he said.

Abada also maintained that ASUU embarked on the strike due to government poor funding of public universities and attempt to commercialise public universities.

He added that the inability of the government to implement some of the agreements reached with ASUU especially that of 2009 was part of the reasons for the strike.
