ASUU Vows To Pursue Ongoing Strike To Logical Conclusion. by Nobody: 6:04pm On Jan 03, 2019
- The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says the 2019 elections will not stop its struggle to revitalise public varsities in the country

- The chairman of ASUU, University of Ibadan chapter, Deji Omole, says ASUU is not part of INEC and that the electoral commission can look elsewhere for ad-hoc staff to conduct the election

- Omole notes that what Nigerians are only interested in is credible election and not participation of lecturers The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it is ready to pursue its ongoing strike to a logical conclusion irrespective of whether there would be general elections or not.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Yakub Mahmood, had said that the planned ASUU strike might affect the 2019 general election.

But the chairman of ASUU, University of Ibadan (UI) chapter, Deji Omole, stated on Thursday, January 3, that the union would not be distracted by the 2019 elections in its struggle to revitalise public varsities.

He added that INEC could recruit ad-hoc staff from eligible Nigerians “who are in their millions’’. “We are not part of INEC, therefore, INEC can look elsewhere for ad-hoc staff to conduct the election. “What Nigerians are only interested in is credible election and not participation of lecturers. “Even when we were not on strike, not all our members are interested in participating in the elections, because it is a voluntary thing
Whoever that feels like participating in the elections can go ahead to participate. “If you check in the letter addressed to individuals that have participated in the election in the past, the letter is addressed to individuals and not to ASUU,” the UI ASUU chairman said. He said that the demand of the union that the MoU of 2017 be implemented was sacrosanct. Omole said that once the union saw the commitment of government, the leadership would bring it back to them at chapters, where it would be taken to their congresses and redirect to national for necessary action
The UI ASUU chairman urged Nigerians to continue to put pressure on government to do the needful by investing more in funding education. He said that private education was not an alternative to public schools and called on all Nigerians to support the strike to salvage the university system in Nigeria..
Meanwhile, some undergraduate students in Nsukka, on Thursday, January 3, appealed to the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to shift grounds in order to resolve their issues. News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Charles Odoko from the department of economics, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, urged relevant stakeholders in the country to intervene and prevail on ASUU and government to reach a compromise so that the strike would be called off. Another student, Jane Ukaegbu, of the department of political science at the University of Lagos, said that government and ASUU should consider the future of students and place that above other interests by resolving the dispute.

Awon oloshi

Which logical conclusion?

As our Professors are fighting for their so-called rights, they should make sure their outputs match what benefits they are getting.

How many patents, inventions and social impact have their research works made ?

I am in close contact with a lot of lecturers....

For their kids : Bachelors = Nigeria

Masters = US / UK

So true. Can you imagine there was no INEC registration centre located in any government tertiary institution, at least in Lagos state, where 40-60% percent of people with voting capabilities resides. All they did was to locate them to primary and secondary schools.. This guys are not ready to to empower the youths ooh. cry

Since when did ASUU start pursuing their course to a logical conclusion?

Watch as they rush back to suspend the strike the moment FG releases peanut of #20 billion to them. An amount that's probably not up to what some MDAs (e g NNPC) collect as annual allowances is given to more than 30 federal universities, and yet they suspbend the strike and we applaud the government.

And it appears ASUU or do I even say university lecturers are cursed with poverty, or how does one explain their poor salary structure that's even worse than polytechnic salary structure. I understand that a fresh PhD holder earns less than 150k while a professor earns about 500k in federal universities. Meanwhile, there are many jobs out there that offer a fresh graduate (BSc holders) more than 200k. And the nation expects the universities to attract the best brains. Little wonder, there are more teachers than researchers in our universities, and more job/promotion seekers than those who want to make impact.

The best brains are undoubtedly in the industry, and no nation develops this waym

Really, you call me his set of miscreants that refer to themselves as intellectuals people you can trust? This guys are only fighting for their pockets and at the same time their demands are not realistic giving the state of the economy in the country. They only use the students as their leverage in pursuing their selfish interest.
