List of Universities Under ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities)

More than 90 percent of Nigeria’s universities are currently under the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). This list comprises both Federal and State Universities in Nigeria.

One of the reasons Nigeria’s prospective university students are scared of enrolling in public universities is the constant strike that is being observed almost every year by ASUU.

ASUU Strike is inarguably increases students’ studying duration (year) in the tertiary institution.

Yet there are those who still enroll since they have no choice but to fit in with the experience if it occurred during their stay in any of the universities under ASUU, especially for those who can’t afford private universities.

However, here is what you need to know about the ASUU as an academic body.

Causes of Universities and Polytechnic Strikes

There are countless reasons behind the ASUU strike, but the most important ones are what we listed.

1. Staff expected Bonus

The major issue that constantly causes ASUU strike in Nigeria is the refusal or decline of university staff allowance from the Federal Government of Nigeria, which, when delayed, results in a warning strike.

Under this, there are other issues such as the refusal to fund universities’ revitalization and the decline to grant lecturers the opportunity to be registered under Nigerian university pension management companies controlled by the National Pension Commission.

2. Knowledge of the Treasury Single Account

Without many words, the argument not include the ASUU account in the TSA sometimes leads to strikes as the federal government insists on including it in the Treasury Single Account in order to have it controlled by them.

3. Little response on budgetary allocation to education

Another reason why Nigerian universities go on strike is the federal government’s casual attitude toward budgetary allocations that are supposed to be used to address some academic issues.

What is ASUU?

The acronym ASUU stands for Academic Staff Union of Universities, which is the body that controls all federal and state universities that are under their control. It is headed by Professor Osodeke and was founded in 1978.

Also, within this body, we have some universities that appear to act partially independently as academic unions but are completely reliant on ASUU. They are due to go on strike as a chapter on their own, but only with the approval of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). A few of them are: UNIBEN Academic Staff Union or Benin Academic Staff Union, University of Nigerian Nsuka Staff Union, University of Ilorin, and others.

How Does ASUU Survive With Their Daily Functions?

ASUU receives all of its funding from the federal government of Nigerians, which is why, if the majority of their demands from the government are denied or delayed, they intend to declare a strike in order to elicit a response from the federal government. Funding includes fighting for their welfare, such as payment of salaries and staff allowances.

Note: this is not to discourage students who have chosen any of these universities yet to be mentioned below as their school of studies, but to create awareness of universities that are under ASUU to highlight the fact that one’s studies duration can be extended if any of these universities is on strike, be it a finite or infinite strike. As said before, the only universities exempt from this are private universities, which means that not all prospective university students can afford their fees.

    Hahahah…asuu should leave alone funding of the varsities & fight for their salaries & allowances, simple. What is their business with they ways govt, who is their legal employers, want to & when to fund their own property, called their varsities. Are asuu employed to come & dictate to the owner of a shop on how he/she will manage the shop structures? Is it in asuu employment letter issued by the civil service commission thru NUC that employed them as a terms and conditions, to come quary the ways & manners they want to position their property? Nonsense! The troublemakers were employed to carryout their duties which are lecture, set exam, tests & mark scripts, do researches, supervise projects, theses & dissertations & collect their salaries, allowances & other legal welfare packages, simple! Hahahah…these varsities asuu is inconsequentially asking their employers to fund so, have been turning graduates year in year out for over 40 years & nothing bad had gone with it…When the govt was building the varsities in the 40s & 60s all thru 70s, was asuu that was set up during during the military era, that told what to do? Nonsense! The point is that, if govt like, it should keep its school or destroy it…it is not asuu concern in whatever ways…let them, the asuu face their welfare as agreed upon in the conditions & terms of employment, simple! Notin concern una with another pesin property…if you like the welfare & structure, hahahah…look for better place instead of been enemies of other poor people children educational progress because of baseless reason…hahahahah..negotiation for condition of service is OK & supported, after all, it is scriptural that, a labourer is entitled to his wages, simple truth…no be a labourer is entitled to go on strike because his employer did not provide fertilizer…hahahah…na so I see ham ooo!
