What is the outcom of the meeting regarding the ASUU Strike Nigeria going to do?

This will determine the fate of Nigerian students who have been at home for several months now.

In a statement released yesterday by Olajide Oshundun, the spokesman for his ministry, Dr. Ngige made the announcement.

The government-approved Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and the ASUU-preferred UTAS are at odds over which payment platform should be used in public universities.

Ngige claimed yesterday that, contrary to what their leadership had believed, the meeting on Thursday was with members of the government rather than ASUU.

Those at the meeting regarding ASUU Strike Nigeria 

The Federal Ministry of Education, Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Budget Office of the Federation, National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC), Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy, and National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) were all represented at the meeting, the minister noted.

He said the purpose of the gathering was to hasten the conclusion of the ongoing strikes by ASUU, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU), and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

ASUU’s leadership started a one-month strike in February, which was later prolonged by two more months. To give the government enough time to comply with its demands, the union further extended the strike for an additional three months.

Other varsity-based unions immediately joined them in calling for better service conditions, the introduction of a new payment mechanism, among other things.

The Federal Ministry of Education, Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Budget Office of the Federation, National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC), Federal Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy, and National Information Technology Development Agency were among the departments and agencies that were invited to the meeting (NITDA). The Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment and the office of the Chief of Staff to the President are where the committees report.

“The aforementioned conference was held to evaluate the advancement made thus far in resolving the few unresolved requests of the striking university employees, including the controversial payment platform and the revision of their employment terms. At the most recent tripartite plus meetings of the unions and the government side, the Honourable Minister and the Chief of Staff to the President appointed these two committees.

For the avoidance of doubt, none of the unions received an invitation to the meeting on last Thursday, and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Dr. Chris Ngige, made it clear to reporters at a State House briefing following the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on last Wednesday, June 22, 2022, that the meeting would only be for the government side and take place the following day, on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

“As anticipated, the meeting took place, and all the parties involved reported on the various tasks assigned to them. As a result, the President provided additional briefing and instructions to speed up talks with ASUU.

The various subcommittees are supposed to submit their reports by Wednesday this week so that Mr. President may be fully informed and decisions can be made regarding the problematic payment platform and the renegotiation of the terms of service, particularly the issue of wage increase.

The Ministry of Labour will convene all parties, including the unions, to a conference table to review the agreement before signing or endorsing it after getting briefings from the government side.

What is the Ministry of Labour saying regarding the ASUU Strike in Nigeria?

“As a result, it is important to dispel any claims that the Ministry of Labour lacks empathy for parents, unions, or students, among whom the Minister is one. The ASUU leadership has praised the Minister on numerous occasions for his contribution to ending the deadlock in the education sector.

He appointed the two committees, working with the President’s Chief of Staff, to work diligently and legally toward the settlement of the payment platform’s early-stage problems and renegotiation of the terms of service. Because they are in the public domain, the assertions presented here can be independently verified.

“However, the ministry will not submit to intimidation by any union to persuade the government, which made the decision to implement the IPPIS in 2017, to accept any payment platform.

“ASUU ought to be aware that we serve as mediators and arbitrators. We are unable to create agreements. Regardless, we are free to listen to the government and urge them to complete their own contribution as soon as feasible.

These explanations are required so that the general public will comprehend the Ministry of Labour’s position as conciliator and arbitrators in a labour dispute.
