The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has moved against its members in some chapters who have failed to comply with its decision to continue with the strike, threatening to sanction them.
This follows a report that a few members of the lecturers’ union have pulled out of the ongoing industrial action to resume academic activities.
According to NAN, this was made known by the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, during an interview on Monday in Abuja.

Osodeke said that ASUU will punish those who have pulled out from the ongoing strike the appropriate way.
He said, “We will ensure to query them and we will follow it up the appropriate way. We have even queried some of them in accordance with the union.’’
