The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has stated that its ongoing strike will continue despite the reopening of all schools by the Federal Government.

This was stated by the National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi on Friday.

“We started industrial action before the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease in the country,” Ogunyemi said according to Vanguard.

He said that all the issues the union raised with the Federal Government are yet to be addressed.

“The government is free to open their schools, just like our members are also entitled to their dues,” the President said.

He also went on to explain that ASUU members are yet to receive salaries pending for over six months now.

Ogunyemi described the Buhari administration introduced Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, IPPIS, as a colossal failure. He also added that the government has not taken any active decision to improve the educational sector in the country, among other issues.
