Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has extended its warning strike for another two months.

Although the union has not made any public statement regarding the outcome of the meeting, but according to a source, ASUU NEC resolved that the industrial action is extended for two more months.

The NEC meeting held at the union’s national secretariat at the University of Abuja.

The NEC member noted the strike was extended by eight weeks pending the time the Federal Government will address the union’s demands.

It was learnt that two key issues that must be resolved before the union suspend its strike are: renegotiation of the 2009 FGN- ASUU agreement bordering on the working conditions of Nigerian academics and deployment of UTAS in the university system.

The outcome of the meeting, the source said, was being drafted to be released in a statement to the media soon.
