Following the directives of the National President of Accademic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, for its members to embark on a Two-Week Warning Strike, The Ahmadu Bello University Chapter has called on members to join the strike.

The Chapter Members said considering the issues on ground, the National Executives of the Union were considerate to have announced two weeks instead of an indefinite Strike.

The Union Chairperson, Mr Rabiu Nasiru, in an exclusive interview with CAMPUS FOCUS made this known shortly after holding a meeting with the members at Abdullahi Smith Theatre, faculty of arts yesterday (Tuesday).

Nasiru who affirmed ABU total support to embark on the strike, expressed his displeasure towards the inability of the Federal Government to implement the Union’s agreement which led to its National Executive Council (NEC) making the decision at a meeting held at Enugu State University of Science and technology (ESUST) at the early hours of Monday.

“There should be no question as to whether ABU Zaria is joining the strike or not. ASUU is a national body that is doing its best to ensure that our rights and welfare are secured.

“ABU joined the strike because it is a member of ASUU and it complies with any decision made by the national body. “That is the spirit of unionism.

“In fact, when we called for the meeting today, the Congress members said the national body is considerate in declaring the Two weeks warning strike, it should have being an indefinite strike.

“This strike is necessary because of the threats and attacks the body is receiving from the Federal Government”.

The chairperson however enjoined the staff and students to comply as according to him “it is for the benefit of all”
