The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) University of Abuja Chapter has begun an indefinite strike to draw attention to developments in the institution since after the work of the visitation panel.
The union announced its decision on Monday after a meeting held at the mini campus of the institution.
The Chairman of the branch, Mr Ben Ugheoke, told newsmen in Gwagwalada that the union had resolved to embark on an indefinite strike beginning from Monday.
He said that the Federal Government on July 16, 2012 constituted a visitation panel to resolve issues affecting the institution but the white paper of the report had yet to be released.
Ugheoke alleged that facts available to the union showed that funds allocated to the institution were being misappropriated, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof James Adelabu, was misusing power.
He alleged that the vice-chancellor deliberately refused to pay their teaching, marking, supervision and professional allowances dating back to 2010.
The union also alleged that the vice-chancellor refused to check off their dues.
