A larger percentage of members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) voted for the continuation of the ongoing nationwide strike.

The national leaders of the union on Monday directed its zonal coordinators to meet and conduct the referendum.

At a referendum held at the Oyo State chapter of the Union, in Ibadan, 200 members voted in agreement, while only 50 people voted to end the strike.

Speaking after the referendum, Dr. Deji Omole, Chairman of the University of Ibadan Chapter, said the referendum was conducted.

He affirmed that members voted for the continuation of the strike because of the government.

ASUU and the Nigerian government are yet to come to an agreement on funds for the revitalization of universities.

The union is demanding N50billion but the FG released only N25billion, saying it does not have N50billion.

Sources at the zonal congress claim the majority of the members voted for the continuation of the strike because they are doubting government's sincerity in fulfilling its new promises.

Speaking after the last meeting, Chris Ngige, Minister of Labor and Employment said

"We have met half way. We have offered what we have; we do not have N50 billion. "
