The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has extended the ongoing industrial strike.
It was gathered that ASUU extended the industrial strike during its National Executive Council, NEC, meeting in Abuja.
A lecturer with the University of Calabar, UNICAL, said: “ASUU has extended the strike again. This government has refused to pay us, so we can’t go back to classes.
“I currently have over one thousand scripts in my house, both marked and unmarked, I can’t attend to them because this government is owing me six months.”
ASUU has been on strike since February 2022 over a disagreement in past agreements reached with the government.
