ASUU meets with FG over ongoing strike

The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has met with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige over the ongoing strike.

The meeting was the first since ASUU declared its warning strike last week, over what it termed as the Federal Government’s refusal to honour its agreement to implement the Memorandum of Action signed with them in December 2020.

The university lecturers maintain that issues such as the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and that of the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), the non-payment of academic earned allowances and university revitalisation still form a critical part of the reason for the latest strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment Senator Chris Ngige, insists that the government is doing its best, and is surprised that the lecturers embarked on the latest action.

The House of Representatives has asked the Federal Government and ASUU to comply with the Memorandum of Understanding to end the ongoing warning strike in the interest of students and the education sector in the country.

The University lecturers embarked on the strike action last week and it is expected to last for four weeks.
