Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the indefinite strike declared on Sunday by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the non-implementation of the Memorandum of Action (MOA) signed with the Federal Government.

ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi said, “having waited patiently for action and meaningful negotiation with reasonable men using the principle of collective bargaining that ASUU at its NEC meeting of 3rd and 4th November 2018 at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) resolved to resume the nationwide strike action it suspended in September 2017 with immediate effect.

“This strike will be total comprehensive and indefinite. Our members shall withdraw their services until government fully implement all outstanding issues as contained in the MOA of 2017, and concludes the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements.

“We have today been subjected to 20 years of continued re-colonization under alleged democracy in which all that the ruling circle have been regrouping among themselves in their various faction they called political parties.”

But many Nigerians, including Sen. Shehu Sani (PRP – Kaduna Central) and former Director General, Bureau of Public Sector Reforms, Dr Joe Abah, have thrown their support behind the union’s action.

However, other Nigerians lamented the frequency of strike action by the union.
