The warning strike which was to ensure that the federal government implemented the agreements and resolutions of Memorandum of Action discussed in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

Their demands :

ASUU wants government to resume negotiation on the 2009 agreement regarding the ruin and rehabilitation in public universities.

ASUU is asking for N1.1 trillion to fund the university system.

And also the payment of fractions and non-payment of salaries, earned academic allowances

These demands were not met by the Federal Government thus the commencement of the indefinite strike. 

However, Agbalagba said the union had sequences of outstanding agreements with the government which had not been met, thus the commencement of the strike.

We do not really know how long “indefinite” will be , all we can just do is hope for the best and pray the Federal Government meet Their Demands. ​
