ASUU’s latest news on resumption
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has revealed that the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-Federal Government agreement which has been a major bone of contention in its dispute with the government is progressing smoothly and has reached an advanced stage.
The lecturers union said that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), which the government has refused to accept, has been sampled for the third time by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and would start testing the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) by next week.
This disclosure is part of the statement issued by the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, and can be seen on the union’s website.
Federal Government has given indications that the lingering tussle between it and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is complex.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this on Wednesday after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said that in spite of the complexities, a lot is being done behind the scene to resolve the issues.
The minister argued that the Federal Government is concerned about the protracted issues with the lecturers and will continue to work to find an early resolution to the problem.
Federal Government has continued its negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as the strike by the lecturers enters its fourth month.
A meeting between the striking lecturers and the Professor Nimi Briggs Committee, however, ended without a concrete agreement as members planned to reconvene within 24 hours to consider a draft agreement.
Some students of Nigerian public universities have expressed frustration over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU).
Some of the students in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt on Friday appealed to Federal Government to meet at least 50 percent of ASUU demands to end the strike.
