ASUU: Crises & Strikes In Varsities Not Over by prof2007: 9:13pm On Jun 06
Academic Staff Union of Universities has called on the FG to resolve outstanding issues before suspension of its 10-month strike, to guarantee peace in universities. The union said government was indebted to many of its members in different universities, with between 3 and 14 months arrears owed.

ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said these in an interview with Sunday PUNCH. Asked what would happen should government remain recalcitrant, he said he would continue from where his predecessor, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, stopped.

“It is continuity, we run a collective leadership. So, it’s continuity from where my immediate predecessor stopped. It (the crisis) is not yet over. Government has the opportunity to ensure that crises are over. It is just to implement those things,” Osodeke said.

According to him, after developing the University Transparency and Accountability Solution as an alternative to the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, ASUU members are “bleeding” while people are being paid what pleases the office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

Osodeke said, “You know we were on strike till late last year. We reached an agreement on how to implement the outstanding issue with the government. We will expect the government to implement those issues with timelines.

“They have reneged on a number of them in line with the timelines. But, we believe it is not late; they can still resolve those issues for the peace and development of our universities. They cut your salary today, they pay those who they want to pay today, they withdraw those next week; they expect those people to come to Abuja to come and beg them or look for other things for them. So, these cannot continue in a university system.

“As a union, we don’t love strike because we have our children here. 99% of lecturers in Nigeria have their children in Nigerian universities, unlike the politicians who are actually destroying the system. How many of them have their children in this country?”

shocked


If there is any fairness in Nigeria, the Accountant General of the Federation should unify the IPPIS so that the salaries of governors, ministers and the rest will be paid via it because what is good for the goose should be good for the Vulture.

Soldiers will protest for non-payment of salaries
Doctors will too,
Teachers will,
Npower trainees the same thing.
But not once have we heard senators protest over non-payment of salaries.

Some of us are still waiting for the day Nigerian senators will go on strike for non-payment of salaries.

Because it seems Nigeria was designed to only work and serve the political elites in power.

Can't you see that university is not for you?
F.G privatise all universities allow them to make money whichever way they can or feel like and pay lecturers through fees and other ways cut the umbilical cord connecting universities to Government

University no fit Nigeria

If that can't be done close all Government universities and allow all university students to go abroad make arrangement with south Africa or Ghana or Kenya or Egypt to accept Nigerian student and subsidise school fees for Nigerians in those countries. And we will see the end of ASUU strikes and all that nonesense

That's all, I'm just trying to make common sense.

ASUU will soon be banned by an announcement by the lying minister followed by a threat of prosecution by the Minister of Injustice.

Buhari doesn't understand this language because he has no certificate. Even the NEPA bill he has been parading as his certificate doesn't matter to him and he's ready to drop it and remain paperless.
I advise these lectures to shut down completely even if takes 50yrs to sort it once and for all better than coming on the round table to negotiate with that dwarf that called himself labour minister. If they don't meet your demand 100% close shop whooooole haa!
What's this sef!

So, ASU measures their president’s performance through the numbers of days the university went on strike?
