Strike: Education Minister To Update Nigerians by sinkhole: 6:00am On Aug 13, 2022
The minister had on 19 July told President Muhammadu Buhari that he could address the issues “within two to three weeks” if allowed to do so.

Nigeria’s Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, is set to address Nigerians on the lingering industrial crisis rocking the country’s public university system, PREMIUM TIMES can report.

This is coming many days after the expiration of the deadline set by the minister to address the conflicts between the striking university workers’ unions and the Nigerian government.

The new development was confirmed to PREMIUM TIMES on Friday in an exclusive telephone conversation with the Director of Press and Public Relations at the Ministry of Education, Ben Goong.

Minister’s pledge
Mr Adamu had on 19 July told President Muhammadu Buhari that he could address the issues “within two to three weeks” if allowed to do so.

He said this when the concerned ministries, departments and agencies of government met the President to brief him on the status of the negotiations with the striking unions and the efforts to get the affected public universities reopened.

The minister had claimed he had folded his arms all along following an alleged claim by his counterpart at the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, that the laws governing labour disputes empower him to be solely responsible for negotiations on behalf of the government.

The President had immediately ordered Mr Ngige to hand off the negotiation with the striking workers and that Mr Adamu should be supported by appropriate individuals and agencies to deploy his magic wand.

However, more than three weeks after the pledge, which was confirmed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, via a statement, the affected public universities have remained shut.

In fact, more than a week after the minister’s pledge, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) 1 August, announced further extension of the then five-month-old strike by four more weeks.

New update
According to Mr Goong, the Minister would address the media at the State House on Thursday, 18 August.

Reacting to PREMIUM TIMES’ invitation extended to the minister to appear on its planned Twitter Spaces scheduled for Wednesday, 17 August, over the unending ASUU strike, Mr Goong said Mr Adamu would also speak to the media on Thursday.

“Yes you can quote me, the honourable minister will address the State House journalists on Thursday, next week,” Mr Goong said.

Asked about the details of the planned briefing, the spokesperson said he only knew that the minister would speak on the university workers’ strike, “among other issues.”

Background
ASUU had on 14 February declared a nationwide strike for initial four weeks to demand better funding for the university system and improved remuneration for its members.

Other unions within the university system- Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and other Associated Institutions (NASU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) have also at different times declared separate industrial actions.

The unions are demanding the adoption of the replacement of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) currently in use for the payment of their members’ entitlements with those designed by the unions.

We are more interested in the strike being called off by ASUU and their counterparts in the University system. Of what use is the briefing? For the past 6 months now, both the FG and ASUU have been giving numerous briefings without concrete solutions to the problems.

Sinkhole, heard the president approved mouth watering salaries for ASUU members . If so, the Tuesday meeting is just formality. Their UTAS is gaining momentum heard Ippis failed woefully.

ASUU is vindicated at last

ASUU is a very formidable union that thrive on facts, my only problem with them is that they seem to still live in stone age! How can a union like them not have website or social media presence, at this age embarassed

It's disturbing seriously

They need to have at least a social media page where we'll get information from them directly

A website would also go a long way in keeping track of their struggles

What a surprising comment embarassed
I will respond to you on Friday, if not before! wink

Please Note:
Tuesday meeting (this meeting will most likely not be a public meeting and the discourse there may not be accessible to all, but rumor of what was discussed will always be available) and Thursday briefing will hold.

Nobody says that the meetings must necessarily bring positivity, but we are all praying that it should be positive and from what we could gather, it seems positive. Meanwhile, if the outcome turns negative, then there is nothing anybody can do about it!

We shall see, on or before Friday. Cheers cheesy

ASUU-FGN agreement on UTAS. Over the weekend, Pantami admitted a lot of pitfalls in IPPIS, thus today, Adamu at the instance of the Buhari agreed to drop IPPIS and have adopted UTAS for payment of all the various unions in the university system.

On salary, federal government accepted to double lecturers salaries, that's, 100% increment as against 180% recommended by Briggs committee.

On EAA, the matter is undecided.
On revitalization fund, the matter is undecided.


God will see us through.
