Public Universities will not be resuming until demands are met – ASUU

ASUU has announced that public universities will not be resuming until the renegotiated 2009 agreement is signed and implemented.

The zonal coordinator, Dr Salawu Lawal, made this known at a press conference at the University of Abuja.

Dr Salawu noted that members are ready to return to their duty posts if FG meets the group demands.

He said, “You would recall that the Academic Staff Union of Universities declared a four-week rolling strike at the National Executive Council meeting held on February 14″.

“The strike was extended for another eight weeks because the FG failed to keep to its side of the bargain”.

“The action compels the Federal Government to sign and implement the draft renegotiated 2009 ASUU-FGN Agreement submitted by Prof. Munzali Committee in May 2021″.

As usual, the Federal Government has ignored ASUU’s call for full implementation of the memoranda signed with the union.

“The FG has not had any meeting with ASUU since the commencement of the ongoing strike”.

“The only exception is our union’s re-submission of UTAS for a retest”.

“We have concluded that until the FG signs the renegotiated agreement and deploys the UTAS payment; there will be no work in public universities.”

On Monday, ASUU Benin Zone urged Nigerians to join the union in saving what it termed as a dying university system.
