>ASUU To Call Off 2 Months Strike 20th August 2013??-VNTI ASUU by david6(m): 7:00am On Aug 20, 2013
Despite the Federal Government’s declaration that it does not have the resources to meet the N92billion tranche of the 2009 agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), there appears to be a fresh hope for the Nigerian university students to return to school next week.

ASUU Nigeria authoritatively learnt yesterday that, barring last minute change in plan, thought and body language of principal players in the impasse, the university lecturers may call off the more than three-month-old nationwide strike action by Tuesday.

Sources gathered that the Federal Government’s NEEDS Assessment Implementation Committee headed by the Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswan, and ASUU representatives have met at the Benue State Governor’s Lodge, Abuja, where both parties reportedly agreed on virtuallyall contentious issues, which gave impetus to the industrial action, except one.

Our source, who is a member of the Federal Government NEEDS Assessment Implementation Committee and a former Professor at the University of Port Harcourt, said that the outstanding issue will be ironed out at the meeting with the ASUU leadership.

The source said that the meeting was shifted to allow the committee brief the President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan while ASUU leadership briefs members of the union’s National Executive Council (NEC).

According to our source, after the Monday meeting, ASUU representativeswill still meet members of the union’s NEC to evaluate all the contentious issues to facilitate a final decision on whether to call off the strike or not, and the decision communicated to the Federal Government committee as quickly as possible.

The source said that the ASUU meeting on Monday is expected to ratify allthe decisions reached during negotiations with government, and NEC approval of the agreement immediately announced.

He predicted that the decision is likely to result in the announcement of the suspension of the national strike by ASUU on Tuesday, and a directivethat all lecturers should return to work and resume normal academic activities immediately.

It would be recalled that the Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswan, had earlier this week in an interview with newsmen, given indications that the lingering crisis in the tertiary education sector would be resolved as soon as possible, adding that almost all outstanding issues have been resolved amicably.

Good development and good news for the students as ASUU has succeeded in fighting of her own pockets.I just hope there will be improvement in the infrastructural decay in the tertiary institutions.

A civil rights organi-sation, Anti-Corruption Network, has asked the Federal Government to release the money demanded by the Academic Staff Union of Universities or risk a protest from students and youths.

The group, therefore, gave the authorities up to Monday to settle all outstanding issues with the ASUU leadership.

Its Director, Outreach Services, Chief Timi Frank, stated this in an interview with our correspondent.

The ACN was reacting to comments credited to the Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, that the FG did not have the N92bn demanded by ASUU.

He noted that the group would mobilise the protesters to “occupy” the state and federal ministries of education in the country.

He said, “Okonjo-Iweala said Nigeria does not have N92bn to settle the agitation of ASUU. It is an insult to the Nigerian students and youths. President Goodluck Jonathan must fire her or we will mobilise Nigerians and lead the protests.”

Academic activities in the nation’s public universities have been paralysed for six weeks, due to the industrial action embarked upon by the lecturers.

Frank also accused the FG of deceiving Nigerians over the true state of affairs.

Meanwhile, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mallam Yusuf Ali, on Monday condemned the incessant strike embarked upon by university teachers.

Ali, who spoke to one of our correspondents on the telephone, noted that the unending industrial actions were destroying the country’s university system.

Although he admitted that the government should address the issues raised by the lecturers, Ali stressed that industrial actions would not solve the problem.

He said, “It is quite unfortunate that the only way our lecturers think they can make government to meet their demands is by going on strikes.

“While I think the government should do the needful, I think the lecturers should also stop embarking on strikes.

“I don’t think strike is the solution.

“There is need for a balance between our national interests, the needs of the students and the needs of the lecturers themselves.”

Do you know what you are saying at all?
Its not only ASUU that is involved, we also have SSANU, NASU and NAAT. So its a joint effort to restore the GLORY of Nigerian ivory towers. Wake and see whats happening in other UNIs outside Nigeria. Most Nigerians are running outside to do simple tasks. Why? Because the equipment are lacking here. This I think and believe is what the JOINT ACTION COMMITTEE are fighting for. GOD BLESS US ALL. grin cheesy wink smiley

Me, i'm not believing anything till a topic reads: ASSU Strike called off. And with a genuine source, till then, our parents will keep using some of us as nannies, cooks and dishwashers.
