A document titled “Strike Bulletin No.1”, which was signed and issued by Ogunyemi, ASUU said the strike action was to be a total, comprehensive and indefinite action whereby no form of academic activities including teaching, attendance of any meeting, conduct and supervision of any examination at any level, supervision of project or thesis at any level should take place at any of the nation’s universities.

According to the document, all means of negotiation had been exploited before the decision on an indefinite strike action was reached.

The lecturers have complained of poor funding of universities, part-payment of salaries of lecturers, non payment of earned allowances among others.
