ASUU Strike Latest: We Wont Call Off Strike Until Our Demands Are Met – ASUU President

The Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufai last week told reporters that ASUU would call off its strike action on Monday after holding a meeting with university vice-chancellors.

But the ASUU President has refuted this claim saying that ASUU is not a member of the Association of Vice Chancellors, and as such, could not call off the strike action until government implemented its agreements with ASUU.

“It’s all government’s propaganda! ASUU won’t call off its strike so long as government shies away from the issue of effective funding of the universities”, the ASUU president said.

He however expressed ASUU’s appreciation to the senate in passing the bill for the extension of the retirement age of Professors from 65 to 70 years.

“The year of retirement is just one of our demands, the funding is the cardinal,” he added.

“Mr. President has scheduled a meeting with ASUU on Monday, if government accepts to implement our demand, that is when we will think of calling off the strike.

“Even at that, the National Executive Committee of ASUU will have to meet and have series of meetings to agree on when to call off the strike.

“However, with the intervention of Mr. President, I believe the solution will come faster than expected” the ASUU president stated.

    Let’s us all know that nothing good comes easily. The struggle for justice, equity and equality is one that demands a lot of sacrifices. Let’s us know that the government we have in Nigeria is one which only language it undastands is strike. However, ‘ll implore ASUU 2 reach a compromise with the FG. LET US ALL KNOW THAT POSTERITY AWAITS YS ALL.

  • After reading the comments by supposedly y students of universities in Nigeria,I know something is fundamentally wrong with the whole system. If a student could call for the extension of his lecturers it means the universities have to go along way in moral retraining. But for the records,Students should know that by the time the governent succeeds in removing subsidy from the universities,they will be the ones to pay the price. There is a calculated attempt by the govt to reduce university funding and force the universities to augment their internally generated revenue for maintenance. If that is what we want because we simply want to graduate at all cost then we should prepare for the consequences.

  • Well,I dnt blame ASUU.It’s all our leaders fault.On dis same issue there was a 4months strike,all for d FG 2 jst place ASUU on scale(hopeles promise).Dis is a country where lives & properties re under insecurity,jst imagine wat happnd @ Kano,claimin lots of innocent lives.ASUU on strike,Boko Haram threatenin,we expct our leaders 2 do sumtin abt it, instead they complicatd issues wit subsidy removal. All we nid is God’s interventn in this country.

  • Emman Harley says:

    STRIKE,STRIFE,UPROAR,PROTEST,SOCIAL UNREST,worst of al-BOMBING(TERMINATN OF LIVES & PROPERTY):these are d only genre of music Nigerian govt are lovers of,bed & breakfast.But ASUU 2 shld b consider8 in getin their met,coz dey dont av kids in Nigerian universities.
    D worst part of d matter is dey’ll leave d 1 killin us unattended 2 & coz more dabaru e.g.subsidy removal prematurely,reimbursement of refinaries dey know are not workin,hidin d faces of dier so called cabals as if dey’re ghosts,unimplementatn of masses-favourin-policies(18,000 minimum wage) ova increament in tax,etc. And we celebr8 democrazy every year in dis same country where “d minority carries d vote”(is dat Nigerian definatn?).
    Its ova time we end these autocratic rule in d disguise of democrazy and “find our way” if we want 2 achieve gud thngs in d simplest way or are we Naijas not allowed 2 make requests?lets continue 2 luk up2 God 4 salvatn.

    If the president and his cohorts are hell bent on deregulation of the downstream sector solely to enhance economic stabilty despite all what was said,i think the best option is for ASUU to be equally hell bent on their request to enhance better educational standards so that all will be good and to the students and entire nation recall that mr president said we have to ‘sacrifice’ so i implore u all to lets sacrifice whatever it takes to stabilize education in nigeria…i just cannot understand a government that will sign an agreement not under duress but will fail to implement it.

  • GREAT NIGERIAN STUDENTS, we all knew how dogedly our dear ASUU has fought for us, should we now sit aback to the ugly menace our supposed parents (FGN) are doing and yet still doing to the future of our advancement zone ( UNIVERSITIES) because of their desires in making their CHILDREN which we all know very well that they are schooling abroad to take over the bussiness of the nation quickly befor they retire or thrown out from thire offices. can’t we see the great just fight that ASUU is fighting for children yet unborn, am a student of UNIBUJA, battling to beging my 1st semester but hw can i gain a better lectures when the source of the enlightment is been treated like dogs. pls FGN our fathers and mothers, hear the cry of we the future of this great nation and grant the appeal and request of our own ASUU God bless us all as we embrace what is right.

  • doncarlos says:

    I don’t care what they say or do we just want to go back to school,if their children were schooling in nigeria they won’t think twice to call off strike. Let change for the better nigeria.

  • wysceeboy says:

    ASUU, pls temper justice wit mercy. We(students) know dat u r fighting 4 our good bt pls consider us as we av bcom d prime targt of ds strike. When two elephant battles d grass suffers. ASUU pls b considerate on ds issue

  • Francis says:

    Please, ASSU should quickly sought out the problem with the Federal Government and call off the long strike to avoid more and more degeneration in the Education Sector. The government should not shy away from what it has agreed in 2009 in order to help the future of Nigeria. Not forgetting that the future lies in the education of today. Stop jeopardising the future of Nigeria.

  • simisola says:

  • Asuu enough is enough, the union should not be too adamant on this issue. The govt have agree on the 70 years which was one of the basic demand of Asuu from the govt. Please Asuu should have pity on the student and call off the strike.

  • Cletus says:

    Pls ASSU/FG consider the plight of Nigeria student. For the fact that some of us cannot afford to go to private university, it is not a cause.on we the federal university student side that we must spend more than the duration of the course of study in school.

  • it is high time the fed. Govt do sometin abt this strike is nt dat d cannot meet up 2 their needs afta all d have d resources………….

  • I support Asuu, but FG should stop given university authority funds to carry out capital project like construction work,it should be done thrugh other channels such as the ministry of works & construction companies to avoid corruption substanded work.

  • Joelyn says:

    How many of ASUU can live up to 70 years in jaga jaga country, a country without peace no fear of God. May God bless nig. Students for their patience/kindness amen.

  • Hey says:

  • Obsidian says:

    How have we come to dis sorry pass? I’m prompted 2 ask.
    Dis is b’cos our fathers who attended diz same varsities didn’t face d rubbish we’re going.
    I’m beginning to feel that ASUU is asking for too much on its own part, while the government on the other hand is, as usual, not assertive to matters that can project us to progress.
    God help us!

  • pls ASUU call off dis strike cus we d student of dis country r begging n we wnt 2 resum skul. Am in my finals i need 2 submit my seminar topic n even project, i need 2 read so as to avoid any spill over wic i knw dat my God will nt agree!
