Ahead of today’s meeting with the Federal Government, President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Dr. Nasir Fagge, has declared that the union will not back down on the ongoing strike if a compromise is not reached.

Speaking to PM News, Dr. Fagge maintained that the strike action was not embarked upon just for the demands, but for the Federal Government to honour a Memorandum of Understanding which it signed in 2012 with ASUU.

“Who’s talking about demands here? We presented our demands in 2006 and it took us three years to get it into an agreement.

“The Federal Government signed an MOU in 2012, that’s what we are asking them to honour, period. The strike action will not continue only if they implement the MOU we had last year,” Fagge said.

He further disclosed that “If we call off the strike when the MOU has not been implemented, of what use was the strike action in the first place? We are holding on until everything is sorted out.”

The industrial action by the lecturers will be forty-nine days old if ASUU does not reach an agreement with the Federal Government at the meeting scheduled to hold later today. [PMNEWS]

  3. Hmmm! I keep on wondering why Federal Government does not value education, is it b’cos of their own Children are not studying in Nigeria?

    My fellow Students think deeply and tell yourself d truth.

    The only way to overcome this problem is unity, so let us unite and eradicate sentiment to have a free acess of surrendering all our votes in 2015 to legitimate Candidate who can give us better education.

    A word is enough for d wise, remember our education is our future bright!
