OAU ASUU commences indefinite strike, sets up committee to monitor

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun state, has declared an indefinite strike over “unpaid earned academic allowance”.

The union after its congress on Monday, January 31, 2022, noted that after several attempts to ensure the matter was resolved, the University showed no serious commitment.

The resolution signed by OAU ASUU Chairman, Dr Adeola Egbedokun reads; “Congress noted that there was no serious commitment on the part of the University to effect payment of EAA to deserving members.

“Congress also noted that all political and diplomatic means to resolve the imbroglia has failed. Consequently, congress resolved that:

“Total, comprehensive and Indefinite Strike should commence immediately. The strike must not be called off without a congress resolution to the effect.

“Payment of EAA must be based on ASUU computation. Anything short of this would be unacceptable. The Strike Coordinating Committee be set up to monitor the strike.

“Based on the above and on the strength of the permission granted by ASUU National President, the Chairman, on behalf of the congress declared the commencement of ASUU OAU’s strike at exactly 11:53 am”.
