FUTA Lecturers Join ASUU Strike, Berate FG Over Approach

“The Federal University of Technology, Akure, FUTA has joined the ongoing strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Prof. Yinka Awopetu, the chairman of the union in FUTA disclosed this on Wednesday after the union’s congress whi h was held at the school’s premises.

According to Awopetu, the FUTA branch carried out the national body’s decision and has ordered all academic staff to vacate lecture halls.

The government’s failure to fulfill a memorandum of action negotiated with the union in 2019 prompted the walkout, according to Awopetu.

He said that the federal government has purposely ignored the union’s agreement, claiming that until the union’s agreement is honoured, the one month industrial action will not be terminated.

Meanwhile, academic and social activities at the institution have been halted as a result of the strike.

Also, majority of the students have urged to the government and union to resolve the problem amicably for their sake.
