The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Lagos chapter, has said it remains committed to the ongoing strike by the national union.
The ASUU Lagos chapter debunked the information that its branch had suspended the strike.
According to a statement released on Tuesday by the ASUU chairperson, Dele Ashiru, the leader of unilag branch, read in part;
“The attention of the leadership of ASUU-UNILAG has been drawn to a fake and dubious news purporting that ‘ASUU-UNILAG chapter gives up for the first time, votes for suspension of strike.’
“This is to inform the public that the strike in UNILAG is still in force and there is no threat to it whatsoever.
“ASUU-UNILAG is convinced that the strike action is a just and patriotic struggle to save the public university system in Nigeria from imminent collapse.”
Recall that the ASUU national body had on Monday declared an indefinite strike after its National Executive Meeting.
