NLC Supports ASUU Strike
PDF Print E-mail

The Nigeria Labour Congress has expressed solidarity with the Academic Staff Union of Universities' ongoing strike action aimed at sanitising the universities. In a letter to President Umaru Musa Yara Adua, the NLC General Secretary John E. Odah said "The closure of our universities damages our development work and retards meaningful progress towards making our country one of the twenty biggest economies by the Year 2020.  Such closure which affects all undergraduate and graduate students also means that this army of youths who should be in school are left in a state of limbo with attendant consequences for social relations in the country"
The NLC has not changed its position and has not called on the ASUU to suspend the strike.
