According to NANS President, ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike because of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) issue, and failure of the government to fulfil other agreements reached with ASUU.

University students have been at home for over 5months due to the industrial action by the academic staff and the decision of the National Universities Commission (NUC) to shut down all schools over the coronavirus pandemic.
