ASUU Strike: FG Sets To Sue ASUU Says Chris Ngige


The minister of Labour and Employment has announced the federal government’s plan of suing ASUU if they fail to call off the ongoing strike. FG sets to sue ASUU.

The Demands Of ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (@ASUU_NGN) has urged the Nigerian Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and the Federal Ministry of Communications. To, refrain from supporting the Federal Government’s effort in not looking at the current industrial action going on in our universities.

ASUU Zonal Coordinator, Buchi Zone, Prof Lawan Abubakar, disclosed this on Monday. This was during a press briefing in Jos. And said, NITDA is misleading Nigerians on the credibility and acceptability of UTAS which has passed the integrity test.

The zonal director went further to explain that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution was established. To look into the state and functionality of the University System which IPPIS does not.

One bone of contention for academics is the non-payment of university revitalization funds, which amounts to about N1.3trillion.

Federal Government Speaks on ASUU Demand

The problem now is that the Federal Government declared not to have such an amount of money to see to the demands of ASUU.

And ASUU should come for renegotiation because this agreement was not done during the regime of Muhammadu Buhari, the current president of Nigeria.

Another cause of this struggle to get the ASUU strike called off is the issue of IPPIS.
The academics earlier proposed another means of payroll system, which is the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).

This system does not follow the normal process the federal government used in paying workers before.
