It has been revealed that academic activities have never stopped in universities owned by Oyo, Osun, Anambr a, Borno, Akwa Ibom, Delta, Lagos, Rivers and Delta states, The Punch reported.



When did ASUU begin its strike?


On February 14, the academic union announced a one-month warning strike, but the warning strike has entered six months and was recently declared indefinite by the union.


Last week, ASUU declared a “comprehensive, total and indefinite strike”, which turned the six-month-old strike into a major national crisis.


This is as the union argued that the federal government had failed to meet up with his demands.


On Monday, September 5, the federal government promised to end the culture of industrial actions in Nigerian tertiary institutions.
