He said, “The government has refused to reach out to us. Government officials have stopped. In fact, they don’t take our calls again. Nigerians should tell the government to do what they agreed to do.

“We signed an agreement and even in May, we reached a final agreement; this is August and nothing has been implemented. Does it make any sense? We are giving them till the end of August and after that, we start the procedures.” dollar to naira rate

Recalled that ASUU decided to suspend the last industrial action in March 2020 after the FG agreed to sign the agreement aimed at settling some of the demands of the union particularly on funding of universities in the country and the irregularities around the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and others.
