ASUU Opens Up Concerning Strike Suspension

The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) on the 9th of December made it clear that they and the government haven’t come to an agreement.

He went on by saying that the Minister of Labour Chris Ngige made a false claim in telling the whole world that lecturers have agreed to end the strike.
The ASUU Chairman of Jos University Dr Lazarus Maigoro earlier today said “It must be categorically stated here that ASUU never signed any agreement to suspend the strike but agreed on timelines for the government to implement certain aspects of the issues in contention.”

For instance, one of the issues agreed was that all the six to nine months withheld salaries and check-off dues of ASUU members will be released by December 9, but the date has passed, and nothing was done.”

The N40 billion earned academic allowances and N30 billion funding for revitalisation will also be released by December 11, among other issues, but till now, none has been fulfilled.”

The next thing is that we heard Dr Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, telling the public that ASUU agreed to suspend the strike.”
