The leadership of the union said the indefinite strike took effect from 12.01a.m yesterday.
ASUU took the decision at the end of an emergency National Executive Council meeting at its secretariat in Abuja.
“In view of the foregoing, and following extensive deliberations on government’s response to the resolution of 14th February 2022 so far, NEC concluded that the demands of the union had not been satisfactorily addressed.
“Consequently, NEC resolved to transmute the roll-over strike to a comprehensive, total and indefinite strike action beginning from 12.01 a.m. on Monday, 29th August, 2022,” ASUU said in a statement by its President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke.
The union said it remained focused on the full implementation of the December 23, 2020, Memorandum of Action for quick restoration of industrial harmony in Nigeria’s public universities.
It also said it remained open to reasonable engagements as it had always done.
