|BREAKING!! Osinbajo Disowns Ngige Over ASUU Strike by Dapromzy333(m): 1:26pm On Sep 01, 2017|
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says contrary to the claim by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, he has not taken over negotiations with the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The vice president said this today through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande.
Ngige had, while addressing State House reporters after the Federal Executive Council meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, said Osinbajo had taken over some aspects of the negotiations and discussions with the ASUU.
The minister had stated: “At council today (Wednesday), the vice president has taken over some of the aspects of the negotiations and discussions.
“So, we are continuing the meeting in his office and when we finish meeting, we will get back to ASUU for another round of meeting and we are hopeful that we will be able to go to an appreciable extent to solve some of the outstanding issues that is preventing them from going back to work.”
But the vice president’s spokesman, via Twitter, described the minister’s disclosure as untrue and inaccurate.
Akandende emphasised that Ngige and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, continued to lead the discussions.
“News report that Vice President Osinbajo has taken over ASUU negotiations is untrue and inaccurate. Labour and Education Ministers continue to lead the talks.”
The ASUU has since August 13 been on a nationwide strike over the failure of the Federal Government to implement an agreement reached with the union in 2009.
The union had also alleged that the government did not implement the Memorandum of Understanding the two sides signed in 2013.
The leadership of the union had on Tuesday boycotted a meeting with the government.
