ASUU Calls Off Strike!!! Fuel Tanker Drivers Embark On ‘Operation Shut Down Nigeria’, Threatens The Federal Government

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, on Monday night, has called off its over one-month strike, after reaching an agreement with the Federal Government.

The ASUU President, Ogunyemi Abiodun, announced this after a meeting with the Union’s Executives, that they would suspend the industrial action for one month, until the end of October.

Abiodun said this was to allow the government enough time to fulfil its promises as contained in the recent agreement reached with them.

To this end, the Union directed University Lecturers to resume duty from today.

Meanwhile, fuel crisis looms nationwide, as the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas workers, NUPENG, on Monday, stopped loading at the various depots in Lagos.

Despite the NNPC’s commitment to ensure uninterrupted supply of petroleum products, NUPENG has embarked on a strike, in solidarity with the Joe Ajaero-led United Labour Congress of Nigeria, ULC, which commenced a nationwide industrial action, on Monday.

NUPENG, which also comprises Petroleum Tanker Drivers, PTD, belong to Ajaero’s labour faction.

The ULC had urged Nigerians to stockpile foodstuff and other basic necessities that could last them during the duration of the strike, as critical sectors of the economy would be affected by the action.
