ASSU STRIKE BY THE CORNER AS THE UNION GIVES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TILL JULY TO MEET THEIR TERMS ON PAYMENT OF OUTSTANDING ARREARS




The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) demands that the Federal Government pays the outstanding arrears of its members not later than July 2017 or face the unions strike hammer..Remember not so long ago the issued a 14-day ultimatum to the federal government,the body have extended the ultimatum to July.

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi,The National President of the union, made this public during a press conference at the University of Abuja yesterday where he stated that the Federal Government is owing academic staffs in federal universities unpaid allowances of not less than N128 billion.

“In view of this, the union rose from its NEC meeting at the Bayero University Kano observing that the particular issue of EAA cannot be meaningfully addressed unless within an agreed framework. Hence the National Executive Council (NEC) of ASUU resolved that all outstanding arrears of EAA should be paid not later than July 2017.
“The decision of ASUU-NEC on the issue has since been communicated to the Minister of Education, Senate President and the Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund,’’ he said.

I suggest the Federal Government do whats necessary to prevent any form of strike as this would be a heavy blow to the already dwindling educational sector. Lets pray they have an understanding on the issue and avert this impending strike.
