NAN recalls that ASUU had on Monday began a two-week warning strike to demand that the Federal Government should implement previous agreements it had with the union in the past.

”We made our position clear some few days ago that we will not go on strike and we are standing by it.

”This is because we are CONUA, and we have nothing to do with the ASUU strike.

”I met with the Senate of the institution and we told all our members that they should go to work and they agreed.

”So, work goes on in KWASU, we are not on strike,” he explained.
