1. Show honour, integrity by honouring agreements reached with ASUU, NGO appeals to FG
2. Angry Students Blast Ngige Over ASUU Strike: Your Presidential Ambition Is Dead On Arrival
Imo State University Alumni Association, IMSUAA, a non-governmental organization, called on the Federal Government on Saturday to show honor and integrity by honoring the agreements it reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, regarding university funding and welfare across the country.
Recall that the ASUU is currently on strike as a result of the Federal Government’s failure to honor the agreements reached with the union, and students are at home waiting for the strike to be called off.
This was one of the decisions made at the Association’s First Quarter Meeting, which was held at the New Haven Hotels in Abakaliki.
The Communique, signed by the National President and Secretary, Prince Ferdinard Ezeala Akano and Dr Anayo C. Uhiara, respectively, and adopted and ratified by all Chapter delegates to the NEC meeting, stated that the opening of Universities would “save our undergraduates the avoidable ordeals of remaining at home while their counterparts world over are in schools receiving lectures and advancing in their development.”
Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour, got more than he bargained for when he announced on Sunday that he would declare his intention to run for president in 2023 on Tuesday.
Ngige claimed that God had spoken to him about his presidential campaign, and that he would make a public announcement on Tuesday.
However, Nigerians have slammed him for the development, questioning his ability to lead the country if he can’t resolve the crisis between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal Government.
The majority of Nigerians who commented on the Daily Trust’s report on social media called the Minister’s ambition “dead on arrival.”
ASUU’s ongoing strike has entered its second month, according to our correspondent, with no end in sight.
After failing to reach an agreement with the Federal Government on university lecturers’ demands, ASUU announced a four-week total and comprehensive warning strike on Monday, February 14, 2022.
The release of university revitalization funds, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of university lecturers’ salaries and allowances are among ASUU’s demands.
Following the expiration of the initial four-week warning strike, the union declared an additional eight-week strike, claiming that it was giving the government more time to address its needs.
Despite the lingering strike, Ngige announced his intention to run for president, causing outrage among Nigerians on social media.
“Even Nigeria’s enemies are running for president.” “God forbid,” wrote Facebook user Agatha Nanmha Langtim.
“Imagine someone who couldn’t solve ASUU problems thinking he can solve Nigerian problems,” Muhammad Huzaifa said. Mr. Ngige, this is a pity.”
“Has he resigned as minister?” asks Onwurah Peter Chizoba, a Facebook user. Because he will almost certainly lose that payment and will not be able to smell the presidency. Two things are about to be taken away from a man.”
Muhammad Huzaifa (Muhammad Huzaifa): Imagine someone who couldn’t solve ASUU’s problems thinking he can solve Nigerian issues. Mr. Ngige, this is a disgrace.
PK Joseph “You are not qualified, in fact, you are the worst candidate among the aspirants,” Michael says. ASUU has been on strike for four months! There’s nothing to be concerned about.”

“You failed to help us negotiate our lives with ASUU and now you want us to vote for you?” says Comr Bakatsinen Zazzau. “Are you deafeningly deafeningly deafening
“It is past time for us, the students of tertiary institutions, to band together and show you shege,” says Anas Galadima. Kutmeh!
“You can’t solve the ASUU problem and you want to solve the Nigeria problem,” says Ajayi Davis.
“Dead on arrival, someone who can’t negotiate between the government and the ASU wants to lead the entire Nigeria,” Hassan Ibrahim said.
Salim Toro (Salim Toro): Ngige, you have a great sense of humour. It’s time for WE (students) to show you who’s boss.
Onwurah Peter Chizoba (Peter Chizoba): Is he no longer a minister? Because he will almost certainly lose that payment and will not be able to smell the presidency. Two things are about to be taken away from a man.
