The Federal Government of Nigeria should honour agreement with ASUU and end ASUU strike.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has vowed to continue the ongoing strike action until the Federal Government meets all its demands.

Based on information available, ASUU demands are genuine and in the interest of the nation as it concerns implementation of 2012 universities needs assessment.

The government conducted a NEEDS Assessment survey in the country and found out that there is widespread rot and decay in the university system, but refused towto implement the report of the survey. ASUU want the government to implement its own report of 2012. This is a genuine request.

Also, the government asked ASUU in 2014 to develop an alternative to ippis that will capture all the peculiarities and respect the autonomy of the university in the country. ASUU have done that by developing the Universities Transparency and Accountability Solution UTAS. Why is the government now refusing to accept the payment platform which they asked ASUU to develop?

All this is happening at the expense of Nigerian University Students, it is the university students that are left to wallow in ignorance, orchestrated by poor education.

How is the government right in all of this? For instance, the 2009 agreement ASUU had with the FG stipulates that, the agreement would be reviewed every three years, but since then, they have not been able to review the salary scale and that is why ASUU is saying that the negotiation they started with government in 2017 ought to have been completed for positive growth in the system.

How are the demands stated above unrealistic? We call on the federal government to honour her agreements with ASUU and open our school for students to continue with their studies.
