UK Universities Embark On Strike In Solidarity With ASUU
Live reports coming in from our correspondent in London states that the University and College Union and other academic bodies in United Kingdom have also joined the teaming associations pledging support and solidarity to ASUU.
In other words the autonomous body has called on all academic and administrative staffs in universities across the United Kingdom to embark on a one day warning strike today 31st October 2013.
As at press time we have confirmation that most universities in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are all under lock and key.
Investigations revealed that top executives of ASUU had recently visited the apex educational unions in UK in a bid to see to their earlier threat to use every means possible to make the Federal Government meet their demands.
It is worthy of note that Nigerian Students in the UK are the third largest Non-EU student population trailing only behind India and China, with a good number of them being children, wards and relatives of past and present public office holders, which ASUU has frequently cited has the reason behind the lackluster attitude from the FG over the ongoing strike.
Although unconfirmed reports from top echelons of the UCU claims that despite the fact that the reason behind their warning strike and subsequent strikes is based on a 2009 pay rise agreement reached with Government, it is unconnected with Nigeria’s ASUU agreement and strike. More updates expected shortly.
