Strike: FG Meets ASUU Today, SSANU Friday by khingTony(m): 7:33am On Jun 13, 2022
The Federal Government has resumed talks with representatives of unions in the nation’s universities, The PUNCH reports.

The PUNCH reported last week that the Prof Nimi Briggs committee set up by the government to renegotiate the 2009 agreement was expected to end its three months’ timelines given on June 7, 2022.

But investigations revealed that the committee would meet Academic Staff Union of Universities on Monday (today) while the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and allied institutions would have their meeting on Friday.

“We are meeting the FG committee in Abuja on Monday,” a source in ASUU said. The union’s National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview, also told The PUNCH that meetings would resume this week.

“We are resuming the meeting this week and we have an invitation this week. The renegotiation meeting will only end if we have called off the strike.

“Since the strike is still on, the meeting cannot end. We do not have any problem with the committee. When we do, we will communicate with the committee,” he said.

Similarly, the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Allied Institutions’ National President, Mr Ibrahim Mohammed, told our correspondent that SSANU’s meeting would be on Friday.

“Yes, we are meeting with the FG on Friday,” he said.

SSANU’s strike started with a warning strike of two weeks which commenced on the midnight of March 27, 2021, while the extension of another two weeks commenced on April 10, 2022 and it is still ongoing.

ASUU commenced its ongoing strike on February 14, 2022, after the Federal Government failed to meet some of its demands including, the release of revitalisation funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution.

Just know whatever FG did to end the strike, they could have done months ago without having to waste or spend two academic sessions.

Someone who had admission in 2015 is still in school but Buhari is rounding up his 8 years administration by next year. Where did you see this kind of country anywhere in the world before?

ASUU must pay for their sins. They were part of those who brought the Buhari plague on this nation.

if you think they are suffering by staying at home, then think again, The “No work, no pay” rule is being applied but they will be paid their salaries when schools resume

They should be paid after they've learnt their lessons not to support dull minds

All ASUU members are lecturers but not all lecturers are ASUU members!
ASUU did not partook in the last election or in any election for that matter, but some professors and lecturers (including Colleges and Polytechnic lecturers) did.

Nigeria students should do the needful by Obi-diently register for PVC and end this strike madness by voting Peter Obi in Labour party.

PDP failed and APC failed woefully, time to be Peterized.

It's only the will of God that'll prevail in all circumstances.

But let's get the PVC and do the right thing.

If they give you money, collect the money, it's your money. But during voting, vote the credible candidate with lesser dents on his image.

Hope it's not fruitless this time around.

100m for interest and form, yet ASUU could not be given shikini money and yet some senators and reps salary are not delayed.
