Strike Still On, Says ASUU President by AprokoGirl: 9:04pm On Nov 21
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, on Saturday, says the eight-month-old strike by universities lecturers is still on.

The organisation also said it does not operate a Twitter account. It debunked reports announcing the suspension of the ongoing industrial action as fake.

The President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, made the clarification in an interview with The PUNCH.

He said, “ASUU does not have a Twitter account. Many people have been bombarding me with telephone calls and I can’t answer again. If we want to call off our strike, we will address a press conference and that is how we operate.”

The PUNCH had reported Friday that the Federal Government accepted the demand by ASUU that the lecturers be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.

The government also offered to increase the Earned Allowances to university staff from N30 billion to N35b and the Revitalisation Fund from N20b to N25b.

The development came after weeks of negotiations and disagreements by the FG and ASUU, which proposed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution as its preferred payment platform.

Reading out the communique at the end of a seven-hour negotiation with ASUU members in Abuja on Friday, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, had said the government also agreed to ASUU’s demand to pay their members’ salary arrears from February to June through the old salary payment platform, Government Integrated Financial and Management Information System.

The breakthrough in negotiations is expected to end the eight-month strike embarked on by the university lecturers as parents and students wait on ASUU to call off the strike.

IF it's still on, then switch it off OR better still, unplug from the socket.

People will never listen, ASUU does not have any social media handle and they will never announce their decision on any SM!
ASUU branches will be meeting between Monday and Wednesday and I believe the branch decisions will be collated by Thursday and presented to government on Friday.
From my own thinking, I think majority of the branches should opt for strike suspension as both lecturers and students are already tired of the strike and moreso, government has offered something substancial!
If majority of the branches voted to continue the strike, I think students should troop out enmass to protest against ASUU, for wanting to ruin the future of Nigerian youths and for wanting to strangulate the government embarassed

Technically, ASUU strike is still on till, hopefully, it will be called off next weekend wink

Are you aware Ngige and co have denied exempting ASUU from IPPIS? IPPIS is the only reason for this strike, other reasons are make believe to decieve the society.

That's one of the problem with people born in the 'stone age' OR industrial age, many of them are rigid & do not want to come to terms with the fact that we're in the information age.

Yes, they are going to pay ASUU with the same method they used for paying them February to June which I don't think ASUU will object to because nobody is forcing them to come and complete the IPPIS enrollment till their UTAS will be ready.

There was never a time government agreed to totally exempt ASUU from IPPIS. Government only agreed to pay those who haven't registered on IPPIS via the old platform pending the conclusion of tests on UTAS. People just quoted the agreement out of context.

What will happen after the conclusion? Government is just being decietful. There may be another strike early next year.
