Position Paper - ASUU: Fix Tertiary Education

On the 14 February 2022, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) embarked on a one-month nationwide warning strike and yesterday, 13 March 2022, the Union resolved to roll-over the strike for another eight (8) weeks which will once again see teaching and learning halted in all public universities in the country due to the failure of the government to fulfill its undertakings and implement the Memorandum of Action (MOA) it signed with the Union in December 2020 amongst other things.

Since this government has been in power, students have lost years of academic learning. You recall that in 2020, students in federal tertiary institutions in Nigeria lost over eight (8) months of academic learning due to ASUU’s strike action and the pandemic — as schools were shut down and the government failed to provide the right infrastructure for technology enabled remote learning.

The actions and inactions of this government have consistently shown that education is not a priority.
