ASUU Refuses FG’s Negotiation, May Continue Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has faulted and refused the Federal Government’s negotiation on its demands towards the ongoing strike, aso Naija reports.

The ASUU continual strike is in its 10th week today and will end in two weeks.

Last week, Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, while featuring as a guest on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’, told the union to meet with the Benimi Briggs Committee, saying the decision to suspend industrial action embarked upon by ASUU could only be taken by the union.

On when the issue will be resolved, the minister had said, “It depends on ASUU. The ball is in their court. They should go and meet the Benimi Briggs Committee and look at what the committee is doing and make further inputs so that the work can be accelerated.”

However, on Sunday, the President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said it was shameful for Ngige to tell the union to go and liaise with another party other than the government.

He added that the union might have no choice but to roll over the strike after its expiration.

He said, “The rollover ends in two weeks, and there is no information, nothing new from the FG. They didn’t make any effort to get in touch with us or seek ways of ending the strike.
