#ASUUStrike Update: ASUU and Federal Government – The Story So far.

share on:

The Federal Government has began fresh talks with ASUU to find solution to the on-going strike action in the universities. The Minister of Labour and productivity; Chief Emeka Wogu disclosed that his ministry has began talks with ASUU through a negotiation team. The negotiation team which includes members of National Assembly is headed by the Secretary to the Federal Government, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim.

The Minister while addressing the Bamanga Tukur led leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) on the activities of his ministry spoke for the government and how it is not satisfied with the original agreement which he described as complex.

He stated that “We have made offer to ASUU. It is as complex as presented. Negotiation is on going, we believe they will soon call off the strike, I’ll personally and passionately appeal to them to call off the strike” he explains further that if they call off the strike, it will not affect the negotiation process but that it is “better to be inside than outside”

Some of the demands of ASUU includes amendment of retirement age of academics on professorial cadre from 65 to 70, Funding requirements for revitalisation of Nigerian universities and federal government assistance to State Universities, payment of earned allowances, reinstatement of prematurely dissolved governing councils, transfer of Federal Governing landed properties to Universities among others.

We sure do hope the issues are resolved soon, so we can go back.

  1. ASUU r being insensitive in dis der demand, if u ppl shld be requestin 4 such tins, u ppl r 4geting d university arena is lyk army barrack ppl r going nd ppl r still comin y. Jst b wise wen makin demands. Dat is only wat i can say.

  2. this so called our leader,they are fool and they think that they can fool everybody.What ASUU is fighting for is for our own benefit,imagine an undergraduate physics or electrical student in it’s 3rd year who cannot identify diode. Is nt as if they cnt it’s jst that there is no provision for it.FG,if you dnt want thunder to strike all of you till another generation,youy better find something to it soon am tired of this house,wanna go back to school.

  3. I will advice fed gov.to provide d demands of Asuu.so that the should call off this strike.house is so boring i need to return back to sch call it next mont….

  4. D fact dt i’m tired of stayin @ home aint a yardstic 2 blame Asuu rathr i blame FG 4 nt implementin d 2009 agreemnt she entered wf d union….is only God dt will judge all of u 4 jeopardizin wif d future of 2moro leaders…

  5. Fed Govt, don’t make promise you cannot fulfill. Govt should graduate from these empty promises, HABA over 50 years with unstable promises?

  6. if the federal govt knew that the agreement it make with asuu was complex why didn’t it make it simple in the first instance?

  7. Our country has a long way to go. .a country where the leaders DO NOT value nor have regards for her educational system is doomed. . Why wil they bother afteral their do not patronize or partake in it. . They are obviously all abroad. . But one truth remains that posterity wil neva forgive you for the destruction you are handing to our education. . . ASUU go on fight for your right. . .although it hurts, to be at home wen i should be in school studying. . . .DIS COUNTRY SUCKS. . . Our leaders are stinking DEMONS,. .

  8. Since our leaders are semi illiterates, they want to see that we future leaders are complete illiterates so they don’t give a fuck what happens in our academic system. But what i have to tell them now is that their selfish thoughts won’t thrive. . . GOD HAVE MERCY

  9. I think the fed govt does not kw what they are doing. We need to pass a vote that no president, senator, house of rep, gov, house of asembly member, ministers, local govt chairmen, and all the appiontee of president and govs shld be allowed to send their children for abroad for studies. This will solve this mess

  10. Asuu should stik 2 their request, especially that of upgradin infrastructure of state university(ansu)
