Education Minister Dismisses Talk of Impending ASUU Strike

Nigeria’s Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, said there was no problem between the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU), and the Federal Government to warrant another round of strike

He said the union will not embark on any strike soon despite threats of industrial action, saying the minor problem between the two parties was information gap.

“We will continue to apply more and more dialogue to bridge the communication gap between the Federal Government and the ASUU to ensure that there is peace,” Shekarau said.

He insisted that the issue of funding, which has been a major dispute between the parties, had been resolved.

He said: “I am sure that any ASUU member that sees what is going on in the tertiary institutions will be surprised. I tell you, some of the institutions, their money is waiting for them and allocations are being made in the last couple of weeks.

“They are just waiting for due process to be followed for them to access the funds. So, it is not the problem of need, the need has to be accessed. Government is providing the funds and we are releasing the funds gradually.

“ASUU is part of the implementation committee. So ASUU is following the picture of what is going on and I am sure with that, the days of strike will be over.”
