President,  Academic Staff Union of Universities,  Prof Biodun Ogunyemi,  has told  striking lecturers in public universities to brace for a longer strike.

Ogunyemi  also  told ASUU members “to be on the watch and prepare for a long-drawn-out struggle to salvage the university system”.

The union called a national strike last month  to press its demand for the implementation of its  agreements with  the Federal Government.

The  ASUU chief said, “Government is yet to change its ‘keep them talking’ style and stance as all the meetings held so far with the Minister of Education are yet to resolve any of the demands of ASUU.”

Speaking after their zonal meeting  at the  Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso, ASUU chairman,  University of Ibadan, Dr Deji Omole,  said  the Ibadan zone of the union  had been fully mobilised to win the battle with the government to improve the welfare of lecturers as well as  funding universities adequately.

Omole said lamented that  the Federal Government  is busy mobilising funds for  the 2019 general elections  without any plans to save the education sector from collapse.
