ASUU by westsyde92: 11:51am On Sep 28, 2013
The National Association of Nigerian
Students, NANS, has threatened to sue the
Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU,
to court over the three-month old strike.
The National President of NANS, Yinka
Gbadebo issued the threat in his address at
the first senate meeting organised by the
union at the University of Port Harcourt.
Gbadebo accused ASUU of making
outrageous demands from the Federal
Government.
He claimed that ten out of eleven demands
made by ASUU had been met, adding that
the only last demand which had to do with
the issue of earned allowance should not be
the basis to keep students at home.
“They are asking for change. Change must
first start with our lecturers. They are
clamouring for earned allowance, they are
clamouring for responsibility allowance.
Very very soon, we may resort to take laws
into our own hands.
“While on strike, lecturers are still using
government properties. They are still living
in government accommodations, driving
government cars. If you are fighting
government, go and return all government
properties.
“We are saying, where is the interest of the
Nigerian student captured in all these
demands. In all of the demand of ASUU,
government has fulfilled 10 out of 11. What
more do they want? How long will they
continue to negotiate our future”, he said.
The students leader also alleged that ASUU
had been compromised by the opposition
party stressing that ASUU members were
often seen with members of the All
Progressive Congress, APC, in Lagos.
Gbadebo, however, vowed to sue ASUU to
court if the strike continued.
“We are going to take ASUU to court. The
issues are very clear. Every right thinking
Nigerian knows that this issue of ASUU
strike has been politicized and that is the
truth. Each time Federal government finishes
meeting with the lecturers, the next thing
you will see is ASUU leaders meeting with
APC leaders in Lagos. What for? He alleged.
The NANS president finally called on ASUU to
devise another means of agitating for their
demands.
