Recall that On Tuesday, Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labor and Employment, gave certificates of registration to both CONUA and NAMDA.

Ngige, who was speaking while presenting the certificate of registration to the two unions, explained that the two bodies will exist along side ASUU. He said this while he was presenting the certificate.


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been on strike since February 14, 2022, during which lecturers at public universities have been protesting unpaid allowances and demanding a better welfare package from the Federal Government.

Falana, the chief attorney for ASUU, recently gave an interview to Channels Television, during which he mentioned that the union would fight the Federal Government about the registration of the two unions.

“ASUU will be taking legal action”

Falana confirmed that the NIC was going to be used.

Professor Attahiru Jega, a former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, has also accused Ngige of complicating matters in an interview with Arise Television.

ASUU has appealed the decision of the industrial court, and in the meantime, the FG has registered two unions while attempting to limit ASUU.

“If this is allowed by this government, I think it is a recipe for disaster, and it may really create more problems than it can solve on this matter of strike action,” Jega was quoted as saying.
