ASUU Joins NLC and TUC in Nationwide Strike

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in Nigeria has urged its members to partake in the nationwide strike called by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC). This move, spearheaded by ASUU President Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, marks a crucial juncture in the ongoing labour struggles within the country.

Prof Osodeke issued a formal directive on the evening of Monday, 13th November 2023, in a correspondence addressed to all the union’s zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons. The communication emphasised the urgency and significance of this collective action.

Key Details of the Strike Call

The letter highlighted that the NLC, in collaboration with the TUC, resolved at a Joint National Executive Council (NEC) meeting to initiate a withdrawal of services. This action was set to commence from 12:00 midnight on the 13th of November, 2023. As an affiliate of the NLC, ASUU members were instructed to join this critical endeavour to defend the interests of Nigerian workers and support the leadership of the union.

Mobilization Effective Measure

ASUU’s zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons were tasked with the immediate mobilisation of members to actively participate in the strike. This call to action underscores the unity and solidarity among workers, encapsulated in Prof Osodeke’s assertion, “A people united cannot be defeated.”
