ASUU Strike Is On The Horizon As The Union Gives Union Members 24 Hours To Declare Action

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

If the Federal Government does not respond quickly, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has vowed to strike.

asuu finally reaches agreement with federal government

The development follows the expiration of the Federal Government’s 21-day deadline to implement its demands.

According to Tribune, ASUU’s National President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said the Federal Government would hear from the union in the next 24 hours on its next course of action.According to him, conversations with the various branches had already begun, and a final stance will be announced to the public soon.

Osodeke revealed that the union’s senior officers met on Sunday and decided to proceed with branch consultations, adding that the consultations would be completed within the following one day, after which the union will issue a statement.

ASUU further alleged that the Federal Government only met one of the Union’s demands, namely the NEEDS assessment and the N30 billion in revitalisation monies, of which it claimed N20 billion was provided to universities.

“It was the principal officers that convened yesterday (Sunday),” he said, adding that

“following our protocols, we are going to the branches to speak with them and then we will come to make the final decision.

“Remember that ASUU gave the Federal Government three weeks to agree to its demands or face another round of strikes on November 15, 2021. However, it has been reported that the Federal Government, through Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige, is attempting to prevent the impending strike.

Remember that ASUU promised to go on strike again if the Federal Government did not implement the Memorandum of Action (MoA) that had been agreed upon. At a press conference held at ASUU’s National Secretariat, University of Abuja, the union’s president urged parents and all patriotic Nigerians to hold the federal government accountable if the issues were not addressed within three weeks of the press conference.

Despite the unions meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment on October 14 to discuss important unresolved problems such as money for public university revitalization and earned academic allowances, he stated.He also mentioned the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) promotion arrears, the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, and the discrepancies in IPPIS payment, which he said had not been addressed up to this point. “ASUU is dedicated to maintaining academic integrity in universities while also aiming to make them more globally competitive.”

“For as long as all parties are willing and dedicated to do their role, we are equally committed to promoting industrial harmony in the Nigerian university system.”

“As the system’s key drivers, we urge on all vice-chancellors to join us in our effort to save ou”r universities’ dwindling reputation.”

“They have no business smearing the collective integrity of dedicated scholars and other patriots who are working day and night to uplift the system that produced them by trading honorary degrees and academic posts for personal and immediate profits.”

“Our union will not be afraid to battle administrators of Nigerian institutions, as well as internal and external forces, who seek to undermine the standards that ASUU has worked so hard to maintain and improve.””Should ASUU be forced to resume the strike it patriotically suspended, the Nigerian government should be held accountable.”

“Finally, we urge on all patriotic Nigerians and lovers of the country to press the federal and state governments to act quickly to avoid another wave of industrial unrest in Nigeria’s public universities,” he had said.
