ASUU Strike: Lecturers Demand Reopening Of Universities

Group of lecturers under the aegis of Congress of University Academics, CONUA has called for the immediate reopening of universities for the resumption of academic activities.

Recall that CONUA has applied to the Minister of Labour and Employmenr to be registered as one of the academic unions in the universities.

The group has been in loggerhead with ASUU and has been making frantic effort to be registered as a separate union.

CONUA stormed the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, NICN on Friday in solidarity and support for the Federal Government for the Universities to reopen for academic activities without preconditions so that Court proceedings and negotiations can continue with students back in classrooms.

CONUA is prepondantly made up of senior lecturers, lecturers and some Professors who claim to be tired of ASUU Strike methodology.

The suit instituted by the
Federal Government against the striking ASUU at the National Industrial Court of Nigeria over the prolonged strike is expected to continue today (Monday).

CONUA had on Friday declared its interest to join the case in court.

Briefing journalists in Abuja, its National Coordinator, Niyi Sumonu, who led his members to court said they were discussing with their counsels to see how they could join the matter on point of law.

He said they applied to the Federal Ministry of Labour for registration in 2018 and were waiting for the handing over of the registration certificate.
