The Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) has joined the current minimum wage strike led by organized labor groups, including the Nigeria Labour Congress and Trade Union Congress.

In a communication sent to the branch chairpersons and zonal coordinators of ASUU on Monday, the President of the association, Emmanuel Osodeke, instructed lecturers from universities nationwide to participate in the strike as members of the congress.

Osodeke wrote: “The NLC has declared an indefinite strike action beginning from Monday, 3rd June 2024, as a result of the failure of Government to conclude the renegotiation of minimum wage for Nigerian workers and reversal of hike in electricity tariff.

“Our branches are hereby enjoined to join in the strike action as an affiliate member of Congress. “Consequently, branch chairpersons are to mobilise all members to participate in the strike action. Yours in the struggle.”
