|ASUU Strike: ASUU Concludes by Austinweather: 3:21am On Jan 12|
The Academic Staff Union of Universities concludes and stands on not calling of the off the strike this week. They embacked on this because they are tired of the various unfulfilled promises that comes from the Federal Government.
The striking lecturer also stated that they will call off the strike only if FG comes up with concrete implemented action. Actions that will cover up their request.
The National President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this in an interview with reporters in Lagos on Thursday.
He was asked when the strike would be called off, the ASUU President said,
“Our members said they want to see evidence of satisfactory implementation of all they have proposed before the strike can be called off.”
“As for the proposal, it can be disaggregated.
“There are items there that require implementation. If they are setting up a committee on state universities, and they actually do, it is not something we need to agree on. It is about action.
“If they have implemented it, it is off the list. If the government says it will pay a shortfall of salaries on a certain date, and the date comes and they release the money, it is also implementation. There is no agreement on the matter.
“On the revitalisation fund, we presented to the government that five tranches of N220bn each were outstanding. The government has not said it will release one, even if it is spread over a period of one year. There is no agreement on that. What they are offering is not even up to one tranche.
“Last year, they promised to release the fund but they did not till November when the strike began. Long story short, our members are saying they do not want promises again, what they want is action, implementation or disbursement of funds. The government must act in a way to convince the union that agreement has not been set aside; to show that government has not set aside the agreement, they should release one tranche.”
He explained that in order to forestall a situation ASUU and the government would restart negotiations on arrears of earned academic allowances, both sides agreed that “it would be mainstreamed into the 2019 budget.
“We are going to have a discussion on when to commence renegotiation because there are still grey areas. If the government can substantially address these issues, we will be more confident to face our members on the way forward. For now, the feeler we are getting is that our members do not actually want to accept this government proposal from us.
“They said they would pay the shortfall of salary arrears of what was removed from workers’ salaries. There are 20 universities identified. The money will be available by January 18. It is around the corner and we will see if it will come.”

I applied and got a visa to go work in the U.A.E (Abu Dhabi), the visa came out clean on 03/01/2019 but I have been unable to travel because I can't afford my flight ticket, now my visa becomes obsolete (cancelled)in 17 days if I don't enter U.A.E with it and I will also not be able to get a U.A.E visa again as it's the law of the U.A.E.
My people abeg make una help me
The flight ticket costs #300.000 to #400.000 as the price changes.
Nothing is too small as your contributions will go a long way in helping me.
