The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) expressed deep concern over the apparent failure of the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to fulfill its promises aimed at resolving the longstanding issues that led to the union’s recent nationwide strike. According to reports received by ASUU, the government’s pledges remain unmet, exacerbating the challenges faced by the educational sector.

Speaking at a press conference in Umuahia, Abia State, ASUU’s National President, Emmanuel Osodeke, highlighted the union’s dismay following a thorough assessment of its interactions with both Federal and State Governments. These discussions aimed to address the critical issues plaguing Nigeria’s public universities, including the deteriorating living and working conditions within these institutions and the broader impact on the nation.

Osodeke emphasized ASUU’s commitment to revitalizing the country’s higher education system to meet global standards. However, the union’s concerns persist as promises made by the government to address these issues remain unfulfilled, leaving ASUU members and the broader academic community disillusioned with the current state of affairs.
