Latest ASUU News On Resumption 2nd August 2022

ASUU Extends Strike By Another Four Weeks

The strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been extended by another four weeks.

The development was confirmed on Monday in a statement by the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke on behalf of the union.

Naija News reports the decision to extend the strike was reached at the end of the union’s National Executive Council meeting held at its national secretariat in Abuja on Sunday and concluded in the early hours of Monday.

ASUU explained that the time extension is to allow the federal government enough time to meet their demands.

The statement signed by Osodeke reads in part: “following extensive deliberations and taking cognisance of Government’s past failures to abide by its own timelines in addressing issues raised in the 2020 FGN/ASUU Memorandum of Action (MOA), NEC resolved that the strike be rolled over for four weeks to give Government more time to satisfactorily resolve all the outstanding issues.

“The role-over strike action is with effect from 12.01a.m. on Monday, 1st August, 2022.”

All hands on deck to end ASUU Strike, says Education Minister

Armed with the progress made so far, the Minister of State for Education, Rt Hon Goodluck Nanah Opiah, has reassured that the federal government is committed to ending the strike action of the Academic Staff Union of the Nigerian Universities, ASUU.

The minister who had earlier given a hint of this development said that given the charge of President Muhamadu Buhari concerning ending the industrial dispute, all relevant stakeholders involved in the resolution have moved into action and working towards achieving a positive result.

Opiah made the disclosure during a meeting with Women in Politics, WIP who visited his office to discuss the strike challenges in tertiary instructions in the country and other matters connected to national politics.

ASUU Strike: El-Rufai Threatens To Sack Kaduna Lecturers

The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has threatened to declare vacant the position of all lecturers of the Kaduna State University (KASU) who are currently involved in the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike.

Speaking on a radio programme in Kaduna on Wednesday, El-Rufai directed lecturers of KASU to return to classrooms.

While insisting that the lecturers had no reason to join any strike, the governor said ASUU had a problem with the federal government and not with the state government.

El-Rufai said, “The Acting Vice Chancellor has assured me that they will resume, and I have asked them to find out if they actually resumed work because I initially instructed that their salary be stopped. But I was later told they didn’t join the strike, so I asked that it should be investigated, and those that collected salary and joined the strike will be asked to refund the salary.

“This is because Nigeria’s law says ‘no work, no pay.’ This is the law. So whoever joined the strike would not be paid salary. We have been telling the KASU Lecturers that they have no problem with State government. ASUU’s problem is with the Federal government, therefore, why will our staff who have no problems with us joined the strike?

“If this continues, I will wake up one day to sack them all, I swear to God. We will sack them all and declare their positions vacant on the pages of newspaper. They once did same thing and we gave them warning, now they repeated it. I’m only waiting to receive the report from the commissioner for education. I swear to God, we will sack all those that joined the strike if they refuse to resume work.”
