365Daily – The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, has directed its members to join the nationwide strike declared by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria.
The strike took effect from midnight of Monday, November 13, 2023.
Osodeke gave the order in a letter sent to all the union zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons of the union.
It read in part: “As an affiliate of NLC, all members of our union are hereby directed to join this action of NLC to protect the interest of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the union.
“Zonal coordinators and branch chairpersons should immediately mobilise our members to participate in the action.”
Meanwhile, the Federal Government has condemned the action, saying it is not in the interest of Nigerians.
