Speaking to newsmen, the National President of ASUU, Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi, said the union took the decision due to the poor funding of Universities in the country.

According to Ogunyemi, Universities at the moment are under funded and several appeals for an increase has been ignored by successive governments. He consequently directed all members of the union across various universities to withdraw their services, stressing that the strike would be total and indefinite.
