The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has denied issuing any strike notice to the Federal Government, to embark on an industrial strike, contrary to reports in the media.
Mr. Ben Ugheoke, in a statement issued on Tuesday, denied making such statement.
“My attention has been drawn to a publication online and on social media captioned – ASUU: Union To Begin Strike October 2nd.
“The story is said to have been authored originally by Press Team of University of Abuja. The general public and ASUU National Executive Council (NEC) should know and note that no one came, either as journalist or any Press Team to interview me.
“I hereby denounce such a publication as the work of mischief makers, targeted at misleading the unsuspecting public about the trajectory of the struggles of ASUU that are aimed at revitalising the university and indeed the education system of Nigeria.
“ASUU is committed to revitalising the University of Abuja and indeed, the education system of Nigeria.”
ASUU National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi , also in a statement issued on Tuesday said the union has not concluded plans to embark on a strike.
“Please help us to inform members of the public that we have yet to declare a strike.”
