ASUU National Executive Council to decide on suspension or continuation of strike.

After Tuesday’s meeting with the Federal Government, the ASUU president, Prof. Ukachuwkwu Awuzie stated that the he will take back the FG’s offer to the National Executives Council (NEC) of ASUU to deliberate on it, following which a decision will be reached to suspend the strike or continue.

Prof. Ukachuwkwu declined to provide the date of the NEC meeting, but there are indications that it might hold on Wednesday.

Earlier on twitter, ASUU said;

“The FG (Federal Government) must meet all our demands before we call off the strike. As soon as issues are resolved, ASUU NEC will meet and address the press. Let us hope the FG will see reasons with us.

“Education is a right not a privilege. It must be funded properly. We understand the pains our students.”

  • Betty chima says:

    ASUU NEC… Meet as soon as possible….saying am tired of staying idle is a understatement..WE WANT 2 GO BK 2 SKUL

  • Federal Government should pls meet their demand, so that ASUU will call off the strike, “an idol mine gives room for evil thought”. The country has more than enough to tackled this period, they should not add more issues to what is already on ground.

  • Vic. says:

    FG stop proving stuborn.Pls fear God nd support ASUU, give dem their right 2 cal off d strike.

  • Thanks to ASUU/FG for the steps taken so far…we(students) do appreciate your efforts on this matter…ASUU calling the strike off right now will be the best thing you will ever do for students of nigeria and the entire nation also.

  • Saleem says:

    Pls tha FG and ASUU should come to terms kuz we are tired and sick of staying at home doin nothin.

  • cj says:

    Look you this Asuu people una own don dey too much oh…una too greedy sef how will you be asking for a professor to be paid his salary for life weda retired or not…how una go dey ask retirement age to reach 75…if 75 years old nigga teach me i no go understand oh….Abegiee make una do call off strike stop forming James Bond!!

  • There shld be a total paradigm shift in the educational sector. The supposedly Ivory tower is in a degradable and a sorry state…there are decayed laboratory equipment and rustic library stocked with outdated materials.
    If ASUU actually mean well for the students and fighting for the welfare of the students vis a vis good learning environment, well equipped lab and lib, state of the art facilities, good hostel accommodation and conducive lecture theatres and class rooms, then, they should not renege on their earlier until all the clauses as penned down in the memorandum have been given due considerations and assented to…palliative measures should never be accepted! We can no longer run the university as though it was a glorified secondary school…i am afraid of the new generational graduates the universities churn out each year!
    Ghana happens to be one of the best universities in Africa today because they saw the need for a change…the universities in Ghana were all shut down for one year due to the poor state the institutions were then. But now, the schools are now standard.Nigerians now run there for schooling…Nigeria universities can also be revolutionised to world class…ENOUGH OF PALLIATIVES! ENOUGH OF HALF BAKED GRADUATES!

    pls asuu consider us as ur children nd call off d strike

  • Keniabite says:

    Dis FG/ASUU ish has been sooo dragged dat Nigerian students hardly know d reason 4 d stryk… We cnt easily tell if ASUU is really interestd in d poor state of Nigerian Universities or jes interestd in dier own pockets… I believe we students should have an opinion about dis. My opinion as regards d whole strike ish is dah: ASUU chairman should pls meet wif d NEC in tym nd come 2 an agreement wich we hope wld b positive… I suppose ASUU has had 3 meetngs wif FG in which 2 ended in deadlock… Buh d 3rd was a lil sucessful… ASUU chairman sir, only a lazy student wld be in support of d continuation of d stryk… Pls let it be clear dah Rome wasn built in a day. U cnt jes build a house in a day… U must start 4rm sumwer… ‘an idle mind is d devil’s workshop.. Believe me you wldnt want 2 see undergraduates carrying arms. So come 2 agreement soonest pls nd call of d stryk… 10ks…

  • Tajudeen ABU says:

    This issue should be resolve once and for all,so,asuu must not call off or suspend the strike until their demands has all been met despite all the difficulties the FG govt is experiencing.though,I am tired of home but patience is needed by all so that things can be inorder.however,if we are saying that the FG govt is experiencing hardship,it does not stop their selfish interest in filling up themselves with our money,so,let us reason and fight for what is right or we keep dieing and resurrecting.

  • Ama says:

    Lets just pray to God to touch their hearts than talking. God pls touch the hearts of NEC of Asuu so that they wil call off the strike.. Amen.

  • Edako Chris says:

    If we want to end all these misunderstanding between ASUU and FG, then it must become a law that as a public/political office holder, your child/children must school in the country and it must be a public school. With that, these CABAL would have no option than to sink 50% of yearly budget on education.

  • deyemi says:

    I wish to join my
    voice to the panoply of distressed voices across Nigeria
    and indeed the whole world to urge the Academic Staff
    Union of Universities (ASUU) and its cohorts to
    expeditiously call off the ongoing nationwide strike and
    return to classes in their own interest and that of the undergraduates currently languishing at home….Pro-ASUU critics and other advocates of adversarial
    government-labour relationship will wonder why a
    right-thinking person would canvass the immediate call-
    off of the strike in the face of the glaring
    untrustworthiness demonstrated by the Federal
    Government and a compelling argument for sustained industrial action. Read my lips: ASUU, and not the Federal Government, is the cause of
    the crisis in the country’s tertiary education sector with
    their frequent unreasonable demands and incessant
    recourse to industrial action, without any consideration
    for the plight of the students. I am all for fair wage for
    good work done, but I am also mindful of the scriptural underpinnings of labour, which empowers the
    proprietor to pay his labourers whatever he deemed fit.
    So, the Federal Government not only has the
    constitutional Magna Carta to pay university lecturers
    whatever it chooses, it also has scriptural
    empowerment. Doesn’t it smack of insensitivity for any worker, under
    whatever guise or umbrella, to ask for wage increase
    with the hard hitting global economic meltdown?
    Should the lecturers not be happy to be keeping their
    jobs, when the rest of the world is experiencing massive
    retrenchment and sky-rocketing employment statistics?
    The ongoing ASUU strike is surely one distraction too many
    and it must be dismissed and discredited. On further reflection on the ongoing crisis, I realized that
    ASUU might be acting out of sheer envy against the some key government officials involved in this imbroglio
    , namely President Goodluck Jonathan, minister of education, prof Rofai etc.
    Furthermore, People often talk about brain drain and it only amuses
    me. Which brain are we talking about here? The threat
    has been on since Gen. Ibrahim Babangida started the
    policy of recruiting professors for political positions and
    not much harm has been done, and not much will be
    done in the nearest future. As far I am concerned, if the whole Nigerian lecturers want to run to other countries,
    let them do it today. Perhaps, that is the wakeup call for
    young men and women need to take their positions in
    our falling Ivory Towers, and probably turn them into
    more profitable business ventures. Now I see why they call universities “Ivory Towers”.
    The people who occupy these so called towers live in
    absolute oblivion. Practically every aspect of the socio-
    economic system of this country is at various stages of
    deterioration. I wonder why the lecturers think that the
    university system would be any different (read better). For example, the last time I passed through the Ore-
    Benin expressway, five years ago, the road was
    manageably passable. I am reliably informed that the
    road has degenerated so badly, over four years after
    Obasanjo’s administration, which purportedly
    appropriated billions of naira for road rehabilitation. And so what? In spite of Mrs. Deziani Alison-Madueke,
    former Transport Minister, blatant tears before television
    cameras over the state of the road, nothing has been
    done, and I believe nothing will be done. And the people
    of South-east and South-south who more frequently ply
    that route have not gone on strike, but have instead comported themselves well and swallowed the insult
    with philosophical equanimity – as true patriots. The ongoing ASUU strike has highlighted one of the
    major cankerworms eating deep into the fabric of the
    Nigerian society.
    It is time to save the university system in Nigeria and
    everybody – lecturers, students, government officials
    and the masses – knows it.

    asuu b considerate pls.Av u thought of setbacks u av caused,destiny’s u av tempered wit?

  • is true that the federal government have agreed with asuu in respect of their requirements,l solicite that NEC should meet and output progressive reports that will facilitate a halt to the bugging scenerio of strike.
    Also, failure to halt this situation can result to suicide bombing employment as vacancy is now open for interested and idle individuals to apply.
    Payment very attractive with a minimum of 100 billionnaire. so fg and NEC. make una think am oh!.
