ASUU went on strike on February 14, 2022, following the failure of the federal government to meet some of its demands.

One of the demands is for the release of funds for university revitalization, as well as the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, the release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and the implementation of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of university lecturers’ salaries and allowances.
