The Academic Staff Union of Universities
(ASUU) has barred its members from
participating in the 2019 general elections
It also said the offer from the Federal
Government in the efforts to meet its demands
as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of
Action (MoA) is still fluid and far from

It, however, allows members to voluntarily
participate but without using any material that
bears ASUU or insignia that relates to the
In a strike Bulletin 8 issued and signed by the
union’s President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, a
copy of which was obtained by the University
of Ibadan chapter of ASUU, asked members to
await further developments on the strike which
are ‘rapidly unfolding.’

According to Ogunyemi, the proposal from
government towards resolving the demands of
ASUU as contained in the 2017 MoA is still
fluid and far from expectations
The bulletin read: “Though some progress has
been made with respect to discussion with
Government agents (The Minister of Labour and
Employment as well as Minister of Education),
at the moment, the proposal from Government
towards resolving the demand of ASUU as
contained in 2017 MoA and Strike Bulletin 1 is
still too fluid and far from expectations.
Hence, it is the view of the NSCC that
members should await further developments
which are rapidly unfolding.

“In accordance with the ASUU’s long standing
position, ASUU as a union will not participate
in the conduct of 2019 general elections,
although members may voluntarily participate
in the conduct of the elections. However,
members are prohibited from participating in
the election processes using any material that
bears ASUU or relates to the union”
