Chairman, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), UNILAG branch, Dr. Dele Ashiru, has said the union is open to suggestions on new methods to make the Federal Government accede to its demands rather than resorting to frequent industrial action.


Critics of the union and some students had called on the union to explore new strategies to make the government do its bidding.


However, in an interview with The Nation, Ashiru noted that the union would implement whatever recommendation it got.


Ashiru, who said the strike was the only option left for the union, stated that ASUU had exhausted strategies that could make the government act.


“ASUU has exhausted all strategies that we know. The strike is the last option. And this is the option left that the government will listen to. As researchers and scholars in the university system, we are open to suggestions and we will implement whatever recommendation we are given.


“Recently, a similar thing occurred in the UK and within a twinkle of an eye, everything was resolved.


“Here, they are busy raising N100 million to buy forms. Corruption agencies are yet to ask any of them how they got the money with a minimum wage of N30,000,” he said.


The ongoing ASUU strike started on February 14, with a four-week warning to the Federal Government to fulfill its side of the agreement.


The union on May 9 announced an extension of the strike by three months to allow the government address the issue.
