The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) has given a two-week ultimatum to the Federal Government and the
Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resolve the strike, embarked upon by university lecturers.
Mr. Michael Olukoya, the NUT President stated this in Abuja at the end of the Union’s meeting with teachers’ representatives across the country today, September 26, 2013.
Mr. Olukoya said that members of the Union would not hesitate to close down the nation’s schools, if the two parties failed to reach agreement after two weeks. He described the current ASUU strike as nationalistic, patriotic and self-sacrificing.
