We’ll Take Action Within 48 Hours – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it will take actions on the Federal Government’s failure to meet its demand in the next 48 hours.

President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this to Daily Trust in a telephone interview, on Monday.

The labour leader said the union will conclude its consultation with various branches across the federation and subsequently make its position known.

The union met with Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who served as the Chief conciliator between ASUU and the Federal Ministry of Education on October 14, 2021 on a wide range of issues.

The issues include: funding for revitalisation of public universities, earned academic allowances, University Transparency Accountability Solution and promotion arrears.

Other issues are renegotiation of 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, and the inconsistencies in Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) payment.

Subsequently, the union’s National Executive Council met behind a closed-door at the University of Abuja on November 13 and 14 where the issues were reviewed.
