ASUU Strike: Cause & Effects

The incessant Strike in Nigerian universities has led to the inability of the varsities to process a total of 461,745 admissions, knowledge trends gathered.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board blamed the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities for the development.

 “Some institutions confirmed suspending the process because of the ASUU strike; ASUU strike is a factor; many institutions are yet to commence 2021 admissions despite repeated appeals,” JAMB noted in the document.

It is imperative to state there is a total of 36,947 candidates of the 2021 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations processed their admissions in private institutions.

The strike  actions by university-based unions such as ASUU, Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities; Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities and other allied institutions have continued to put  academic activities in federal and state universities to disarray.
