ASUU, FG fail to agree on contentious
issues

ABUJA -THE hope for the re-opening of
universities in the shortest possible time
was dashed Thursday after the Federal
Government constituted committee
chaired by the Benue State Governor,
Hon. Gabriel Suswan in a meeting with
the leadership of the Academic Staff
Union of Universities, ASUU, failed to
agree on the contentious issues.
There were expectations that ASUU could
call off the strike after the meeting as the
National President of the union Dr. Nasir
Fagge had previously said that calling off
the strike was dependent upon what the
Federal government would place on the
table in respect of the implementation of
the 2009 agreement.
Speaking to Vanguard on the outcome of
the meeting, Dr. Fagge said, “Well it was
inaugural meeting, so naturally nothing
much was achieved. It is just that the
chairman (Governor Gabriel Suswan) told
us how he wants to carry out the
assignment.
“And then he said that he thinks we
should have a sub-committee that will
liaise with TETFund and National Planning
Commission to get more information on
the technical report that was submitted
by the Needs Assessment Committee and
on the basis of that, projects will be
identified and will now look for the
funding.”
On the promise he made that after the
meeting the union would take a stand
depending on what the government
would place on the table, he said, “There
is no change any way because the
meeting today is just considering one
aspect of the agreement, which is
funding.
“So what we did today was to have an
inaugural meeting on funding and our
members nation wide said nothing short
of implementation of all aspects of the
agreement will make them call off the
strike, so like I said whatever meeting we
are invited, we will go and give our
members information.
“ like I said today’s meeting was an
inaugural meeting nothing much was
achieved there order than how to go and
implementing the Needs Assessment
Report which is an aspect of funding
aspect of the agreement, so we will wait
and see whatever government decides to
do with the agreement, we are there.”
