NO GUARANTEE OF INDUSTRIAL HARMONY BETWEEN GOVERNMENT AND ASUU-ASUU ABUJA

 

The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU), Abuja Zone says it can no longer guarantee industrial harmony in public universities due to the ongoing atitude of Government to the MoAs and MoUs signed with the Union.

Dr. Salahu Mohammed Lawal, the Zonal Coordinator of the union disclosed this during a media conference at in Abuja.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Abuja zone comprises the Federal University of Lafia, Federal University of Technology Minna, Nasarawa State University Keffi, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University Lapai, and the University of Abuja.

Dr. Lawal said the Government reneged on its promises to the Union and the Nation and this could lead to another industrial strike action in the Universities.

 

It will be recalled that the union signed an MoA with the Governement leading to the suspension of the 2020 strike action in February 2021.

9 months later, ASUU is again calling on the Government to honour its promises to the Nigerian people on the immediate deployment of the University Transperancy and Accountability Solution (UTAS), the singning into law of the draft renegotiated 2009 agreement, and the release of Revitalization Funds to public Universities to address the deplorable conditions under which students live and learn.

The union therefore urged government to release white paper to pave way for the implementation of MOA.
