The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has resolved to go on an indefinite strike, after an exclusive deliberation.

The union, in a meeting held in Abuja from friday, directed all her members against involving in any academic activity.

A statement signed by ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, said all means of negotiation had been exploited before the decision on an indefinte strike action was reached.

Earlier, ASUU had asked its branches to conduct referendum among members on whether or not an indefinite strike should be called.

It was gathered that the Abuja meeting which ended in the early hours of Monday reviewed the overwhelming position of the branches to proceed on the strike and adopted it.

The lecturers complained of poor funding of universities, part-payment of salaries of lecturers and the kidnap of two lecturers of the University of Maiduguri by the Boko Haram.

Recall that some lecturers, members of an NNPC-led oil exploration team in Lake Chad Basin were kidnapped.
