ASUU Bars Members From Participating in 2019 Polls

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) stated that its members will not participating in the 2019 general polls.

It also said offers from the Federal Government in the efforts to meet its demands as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoA) are still fluid and far from expectations.

It, however, allows members to voluntarily participate but without using any material that bears ASUU or insignia that relates to the union.

In a strike Bulletin 8 by the union’s President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, a copy of which was obtained by the University of Ibadan chapter, the body asked members to await further developments on the strike which are ‘rapidly unfolding.’

The bulletin reads: “Though some progress has been made with respect to discussion with Government agents (The Minister of Labour and Employment as well as Minister of Education), at the moment, the proposal from Government towards resolving the demand of ASUU as contained in 2017 MoA and Strike Bulletin 1 is still too fluid and far from expectations. Hence, it is the view of the NSCC that members should await further developments which are rapidly unfolding.

“In accordance with the ASUU’s long standing position, ASUU as a union will not participate in the conduct of 2019 general elections, although members may voluntarily participate in the conduct of the elections. However, members are prohibited from participating in the election processes using any material that bears ASUU or relates to the union”
