ASUU STRIKE: Federal Government Gives Update On The Meeting Outcome


The Federal Government, yesterday, communicated the expectation that the one-month cautioning strike set out upon by the Academic State Union of Universities, ASUU, on February 14, 2022, would be before the long end.

Review that ASUU called its individuals out on the advance notice strike to urge the Federal Government to address their requests, some of which had been waiting starting around 2009.
Pastor of Labor and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, communicated the expectation of a finish of the advance notice hit when he talked with newsmen toward the finish of a pacification meeting between the public authority and the association.

Ngige said the gathering settled on many issues and a timetable was planned for the execution of the arrangements.

As per him, ASUU authorities consented to get back to their individuals with offers made by the public authority and return to him before the week runs out.

He noticed that a considerable lot of the things in the 2020 Memorandum of Action, MOA, had been managed comprehensively, while some were being tended to

He said: “We have just a couple of new regions. One of the new regions is the renegotiation of the Conditions of Service, which is known as the ‘2009 Agreement’.

“An arrangement was reached in 2009 that their Conditions of Service would be assessed at regular intervals. It was done in 2014.

We began one in which the previous UNILAG Pro-Chancellor, Wale Babalakin, SAN, led the board of trustees.

“After Babalakin, Prof. Manzali was in control and the panel thought of a draft archive, proposed by the Federal Ministry of Education and ASUU.

“Today, Manzali’s board of trustees has become old because large numbers of individuals in the council are at this point not supportive of chancellors.”

Ngige said another group had been comprised to require another once-over at that archive.

Prior, the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said: “The instruction area in Nigeria is in emergency and cash is being lost at the essential, auxiliary and tertiary training levels.”

He noticed the quantum of cash that should have been utilized to support instruction in Nigeria was being lost to different nations as he required an announcement of crisis in the area to tackle the issue.
