The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has denied media reports saying that it was planning to embark on a one-week warning strike over unpaid dues by the Federal government on October 2.
Speaking with Premiun Times in an interview today said:
A certain reporter in NAN is responsible for this damage. As a result of this falsified report, I am facing a panel later tonight from ASUU National body. I have reached out to the NAN reporter and he told me it was a mix-up. He also begged me to save his job. We have never given a date for any form of strike, whether warning strike or full blown strike. There was nothing like a date fixed for a strike.
Ugheoke also said he hopes the agency will release a rebuttal to the false report soon and urged those in the education sector to disregard such.
