ASUU Strike

KanyiDaily recalls that ASUU had embarked on a warning strike since February 14, over the failure of the federal government to meet its demands.

Amid the strike, the government and the union have held a series of meetings, but no agreement has been reached by both sides on ending the strike.

On Monday, May 16, angry students from various universities in Ondo took to the streets to express their displeasure by blocking Ilesha/Akure highway while demanding for necessary actions to be taken so they can return to their distinct classrooms.
