Last week ASUU has express its readiness to embark on another round of industrial action following ASUU described as “failure of the Federal Government to implement an earlier agreement signed with the union”.

ASUU gave FGN till last Tuesday to implement the pact or it would activate the procedure of embarking on a strike.

“The Federal Government must do what it agreed to”, the President, ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke said. “The government has refused to reach out to us. Government officials have stopped. In fact, they don’t take our calls again. Nigerians should tell the government to do what it agreed to do.

“We signed an agreement and in May, we reached a final agreement; this is August and nothing has been implemented. Does it make any sense?”


Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said “ASUU was referring to a meeting its leaders had with the Ministry of Education”. “the resolution at that meeting to become an agreement, there were laid down procedures that must be followed”.

The minister continued “such an agreement must pass through his ministry and end up at the Federal Executive Council, where a final decision would be reached on it”.

The Minister further explained, “ASUU was talking about a meeting it had at the Ministry of Education. I have not received any report on that meeting.
“When they mention the government, I get confused whether they mean the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning or the Presidential Committee on Salaries and Wages or my ministry.

“When they talk about the government, it is a bogus statement, which they use all the time to confuse the public.

The Federal Government has condemned the Academic Staff Union of Universities accusations it of failing to implement the agreement it signed with the union.

It said there was a process through which decisions on such issues were taken and that process had not been followed through as far as the agreement being referred to by ASUU was concerned.

Fresh ultimatum recently issued by ASUU, accused the union of causing panic among Nigerian students accross schools as Mastery Media interviewed few students saying “last industrial action alternate the academic calendar and caused extral year in school. While other students appreciated ASUU agitations but beg that the Federal government and ASUU should look for a more diplomatic ways to solve the problems.

Many reasons for ASUU agitations which started from refusal of ASUU to join IPPIS, equipments needed in universities and general welfare of universities.
