ASUU Strike: Students Recruited For #EndSARS Protests — Ngige by ogododo: 9:25pm On Oct 15
The Federal Government has lamented that university students who should be in the classrooms have been “recruited” to join the ongoing #EndSARS protests.

It blamed the development on the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said this at a reconciliation meeting between the government and ASUU officials on Thursday in Abuja.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Ngige said, “For the past one week, we have all been on our toes, we have been meeting and we pray that this meeting will yield good fruits.

“We don’t take pleasure to the fact that the children who are supposed to be in school are being recruited into the #EndSARS, #EndStrike, #EndSWAT campaigns.

“As much as possible, we will try to see how we can meet ourselves halfway, so that we can resolve this crisis to the benefits of all and the country at large.”

The minister said that FG has commenced the process of testing the University Transparency Accountability Solution platform created by ASUU.

He said that ASUU members have claimed that the platform will accommodate the peculiarities of the university systems and that the platform will involve three stages of tests to be concluded within the time frame the union gave the government.

“We have the preliminary report and the test-run on the UTAS, and we believe that with that, we will be able to get it right.

“Let me make it clear to members of the press, we never said UTAS will replace the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information as some are reporting.

“No! The UTAS developed by them is for the university systems and they feel that it captures the peculiarities that are configured to accommodate all the university systems, especially as it affects the professors and other teaching staff and even the non-academic staff.

“We, as government, feel we are going to put it up for tests – three stages of tests. We have done the first stage of test which is within the timeline of six months that ASUU promised.

“We are going to do other integrity tests — Alpha test, Beta test and the one they call roll-over and other whatever test. It is the technologists that know all those tests. But this is the round we are going on now,” he said.

On his part, ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, commended Senate President Ahmed Lawan, Ngige, amongst others for making the discussion possible between the concerned parties.

He said, “We are here with an open mind and at the same time, we need to put it on record that our members out there expect much from this meeting.

“Our members are ready and willing to go back to class because it is a matter of national interest. Just like every other person’s child is at home, our children are also at home.”

The #EndSARS protest is a preamble to something huge, that is coming. Personnel of the disbanded SARS are not the problems, but the excesses of some of them provided the trigger for what might be the most popular protest in recent Nigerian history.

Those advising our governors and other politicians that they could stop these protests by showing support to the protesters may not be telling them all the truth. Yes, many of these governors and politicians are trying to rig the protests, the same way they rig elections by identifying with the protesters and even raising placards and joining on protest marches. But, this may not work as well as they have been made to believe it will.

This might be about the only opportunity Nigerians have to get those in authority to redress so many things that have gone bad.

So only university students are part of endSARS protests? After keeping the same tertiary institution students @ home citing COVID19 yet govt activities including non-covid compliant elections took place in Edo/Ondo?

So why the needless lamentation by the government? Perhaps their clueless and incompetency have affected them so much that acute confusion state have set in.#ENDSARS

It is obvious. Restless students who are tired of sitting at home since the lockdown in March are the ones being used to fuel these protests. ASUU on the other hand don't care because they know they will receive their salaries whether they work or not. #EndASUU

Ngige should keep fooling himself. All he knows is feeding himself fat in Abuja.

No iota of impact

He and his ilks are shamed.

He will soon tell us who's recruiting them.

Calling students back to school isnt a way out of the protest, rather i see it as an avenue for 'get inside children whose parents are very strict' to gain freedom and join the protest in school.

Remember, there is freedom in school...it makes it more easier to have more students on the street protesting...

Nonsense. Thats why you guys settled them to resume school.

Why have you not addressed school resumption until protests started?

They want to end ASUU strike by force so that the protests will seize.. But their plan won't work. This further proves that the govt had the power to end the strike since months ago but refused to do so. Very evil govt
