The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, and the Federal Government will face national days of protest on July 26 and 27, according to the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, in an effort to terminate the ongoing strike.

According to reports, on February 14, 2022, ASUU closed down public institutions since the federal government was unable to carry out the agreements that the two sides had made in previous years.

The University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) program must be implemented, earned allowances must be paid, and promotion arrears must be paid, according to ASUU and other unions.
