Latest news in Nigeria on ASUU Strike
The Academic Staff Union of Universities’ (ASUU) strike will go on as planned because the union’s National Executive Council, or NEC, did not discuss the possibility of postponing the strike at its meeting, which ended early on Monday in Abuja.
Only their interactions with and submissions to the Prof. Nimi Briggs Committee, which was established by the Federal Government to renegotiate the 2009 Agreement with the union, were discussed by the union’s national leadership during the meeting.
According to a source, the NLC’s intervention in the situation and the subsequent statewide solidarity marches staged by the Congress and its affiliates last week were also discussed by the leadership at the meeting.
“There was no need for the NEC to contemplate suspending the strike because there is no indication that the administration is making any significant commitments.
Can anyone confirm that this is the government’s offer? The Briggs Committee was established by them, and after it issued recommendations, the administration ignored the document.
“The government’s sincerity is lacking. Let’s imagine that the government makes an offer and we decide whether or not to take it because we are asking for too much, which isn’t really the case.
They intend to destroy the university system, just like they did with public elementary and secondary institutions, we have been saying.
How many Nigerians today are proud to enroll their kids in the same public elementary and secondary institutions that we all attended back then?
The union’s national leadership will shortly announce our choices, the source stated.
Remember that the union has been on strike since February 14 of this year, following which other unions representing non-teaching personnel started their own strikes.
Across the states and in Abuja, protests in support of the union’s demands for an immediate reopening of the universities were organized on last Tuesday and Wednesday.
