Lecturers in universities, polytechnics and colleges of education have embarked on no fewer than 719 days of strike since the inception of the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in May 2015.
An analysis of activities in the tertiary education sector, carried out by our correspondent on Wednesday, revealed this.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities is currently on strike in protest against members’ poor welfare and lack of adequate funds for universities among others.
Members of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics and the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union are also currently on strike based on similar issues.
The analysis showed that in January 2017, ASUP, under the then National President, Usman Dutse, embarked on a seven-day warning strike from January 30, 2017 to February 5, 2017.
