The Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) today gave 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.
The NUT President, Michael Olukoya, gave the ultimatum in Abuja at the end of the union’s meeting with teachers’ representatives across the country.
The NUT is made up of teachers in public primary and secondary schools across Nigeria.
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.”
“We will not hesitate to shut down the education system in the country, if the government fails to fulfill or honour the agreement it entered into with the lecturers,” he said.
