ASUU strike: Why FG reversed decision to reopen universities


New information has emerged as to why the Federal Government quickly reversed its order to university administrations to reopen public universities despite the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Remember that the Federal Government had previously directed Vice-Chancellors to reopen schools.

It had asked university Vice-Chancellors to “ensure that the striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) resume and commence lectures as soon as possible.”

However, it later issued a new directive retracting its previous circular.

According to reports, opinion leaders and other stakeholders interested in resolving the standoff between the ASUU and the government put pressure on the government to withdraw the circular that had previously mandated the reopening of the universities.
According to an unnamed senior official in the Ministry of Education, “the circular was withdrawn to allow for more negotiation between government and the ASUU following the ongoing invention by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.”
