Why we have not ended the strike – ASUU

Published

on

By

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated that the federal government is frustrating the union, hence the reason for the ongoing strike.

Speaking on Friday, October 30, on Channels TV, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, the national president of the union, stated that the federal government has not maintained a sincere position in consenting the demands of the union. Ogunyemi further explained that ASUU has tabled five demands to the federal government which have not been fully entertained.He emphasised that “necessary steps” have not been taken especially concerning the adoption of its preferred home-grown University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) which is one of its demands. It would be recalled that for the second time in a week, the meeting between the leadership of ASUU and the federal government ended in deadlock. The meeting, which was held on Wednesday, October 28, hit the rock as both parties failed to reach a unilateral agreement on the adoption of UTAS. A federal government team led by the minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige, refused that the N30billion earned allowance promised to the lecturers be paid through a platform different from IPPIS. ASUU chairman, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, however, stood the ground that the payment should be made through UTAS. Eventually, both sides agreed to consult their principals, with another meeting scheduled to hold next week Wednesday, November 4. Speaking to the press after the meeting, the ASUU chairman said:

“The strike is still on as a result of the FG not taking the necessary steps. We gave them two weeks to address our five points demands.”
