Breaking ASUU Strike Update : ASUU Withdraws From Negotiations With FG

ASUU has pulled out of negotiations with FG starting Thursday, 22nd August, 2013 – This is the sad Update on the 2013 ASUU Strike coming this evening. The Academic Staff Union of Universities has decided to pull out of negotiation with the Federal Government. If you think the ongoing ASUU strike will come to an end soon, then you should have a rethink. It’s not coming to an end anytime soon.

Read the full gist as reported by ThisDayOnline:

The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Thursday announced its disengagement from further negotiations with the Federal Government, over what it describes as the latter’s perceived insincerity in the 2009 agreement as well as the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) both parties signed in January last year.

The union National President, Dr. Nassir Faggae Isa, said at a press briefing held at the University of Lagos on Thursday that the 2009 agreement and the MoU must first be honoured, even if ASUU feels the need to consider renegotiation with the government.
The union had embarked on a total strike on July 2 over government‘s failure to honour the 2009 agreement.

Faggae said, “Consequently, our members are left with no other choice than to prosecute this strike to its logical conclusion. ASUU members nationwide are saying this striker will not be suspended until and unless the government respects the 2009 agreement and makes concrete efforts to implement it in the best interest of the country.”

According to him, during a meeting held between ASUU and the government representative on Monday, government declared that it neither had any motive to revitalize public universities through committed funding, nor was it ready to pay in full the accumulated Earned Academic Allowances between 2009 and 2013.

  1. So sad indeed,the Govt cannot honor an agreement it signed willingly,all they care about is looting the money and sending their kids to the best schools abroad,Allah ya isa

  2. I suggest that, and appeal to ASUU that if FG have impleted up to at least 90% of the agreement, ASUU should please,…

  3. my take on this is that ASUU should stand firm on their ground untill their request is fully implemented not maybe after they compromise with FG, tomorrow the buried issue will still germinate. On the other hand, FG should see they implement the agreement lets then see what will emarge striking issues again. Pls we Nigerian students are tired of strike issues in nigeria universitie bcus it is really drawing the growth of our dear nation back.
