The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Delta State University, Abraka, Chapter, yesterday, called on stakeholders, including civil society organisations, traditional rulers, church leaders and other well-meaning Nigerians, to prevail on the Federal Government to fully implement the 2009 ASUU/FGN Agreement; 2012 Memorandum of Understanding, MoU; the Needs of Assessment Report, and stop playing politics with the future of young ones in the country.
In a statement issued by its chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Mordi, the chapter said that the Federal Government should be held responsible for the delay in calling off the nationwide strike embarked upon by the union.
ASUU had embarked on an indefinite strike on July 2 over the government’s refusal to implement the 2009 agreement with the union. Both the government and the union have accused each other of lying on different occasions. With no end likely in sight, the Delta State chapter has expressed hope stakeholders will prevail on the government so as to bring an end to the lingering strike.
