FG Promises to Look Into ASUU’s Grievances

The Federal Government has again promised to address the threat by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to prevent it from going on strike.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige made the promise in an interview with Punch on Wednesday, February 9, 2022, in Abuja.

Lately, members of the union have been threatening to embark on an indefinite strike over the failure of the Federal Government to honor some of the agreements it signed with them.

Reacting to ASUU’s threats, Ngige said President Muhammadu Buhari has asked him and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu to step in and settle the union’s grievances.

Recall that in 2020, Nigerian Universities were shut down for nine months and were not reopened until ASUU suspended its industrial action in December of that year.

In 2021, the union threatened to go on an indefinite strike again but suspended the move following the payment of N22.1bn earned allowances and the release of N30bn revitalisation fund to the universities.
