The Academic Staff Union of Universities has warned that it may go on strike again after the Federal Government failed to meet their demands.

According to the Lagos zonal coordinator of the Union, Dr Adelaja Odukoya while speaking to the media on Tuesday.

He said the Government has refused to release check-off dues of the members for over a year.

“We called off our strike last December and signed an MOA and out of the nine items on the list for implementation, only two have been done. The first is the setting up of Visitation. Panels to universities.

“Can you imagine that we as union are the ones asking the government to set up panels to know what is happening in their universities?

“Setting up of panels ought to be done every five years.

“The second item is the promotion arrears and that has not been done completely. A number of our members in some universities are yet to benefit.

“Can one say scoring two out of nine marks is enviable? The Revitalisation Fund that they said had been deposited at the Central Bank of Nigeria since January this year is still crawling and has not got to the accounts of beneficiaries,” he said.

The Union also accused the Federal Government of not fulfilling the Memorandum of Action signed in December.
