The latest ASUU strike update is that the President of ASUU, Dr. Isa Fagge, has told Nigerians that University students are fully in support of the strike and don’t want the union to call off the strike.
Read the full gist as reported by DailyPost
The end to the industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is not in sight as the union’s President, Dr. Isa Fagge, has said that students don’t want lecturers to end the strike.
Fagge said the students had instead urged them to continue with the industrial actions since the Federal Government did not want to implement the agreement it had with union since 2009.
The union leader who stated this in an interview with Punch said they had decided to heed the advice of the students to continue the strike until the Federal Government is ready to shift ground.
“Our students have come out to say they don’t want us to call off the strike until the Federal Government answers us, because they don’t want us to call off now and later we go back to strike again. So, we are heeding the advice of our students.
“There are issues and agreement they can implement without money. Why don’t they begin with those ones?” He asked.
Fagge added that it was unfortunate that the government had decided to pull out of the negotiations with ASUU, stressing that the union would not be intimidated.
He said, “Now, government has pulled out of the dialogue. We thought we were the ones going on strike, but now government has also gone on strike”.
