ASUU Agrees to Participate in 2019 Elections

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has agreed to participate in the forthcoming general election.
The agreement was reached at a meeting between the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and officials of the union in Abuja.
Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, had on Thursday raised concern that the bulk of critical election duty staff are drawn from the universities.
“We are determined to ensure that (election) processes are not affected by the union’s industrial action. ASUU is a critical partner to the commission in delivering credible elections,” he had said.
The development comes after the University of Ibadan (UI) chapter of ASUU told INEC not to depend on students and lecturers for the general election.
