ASUU STRIKE: FG Fights Back

As the ongoing strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, enters the fourth month, there are strong indications that the Federal Government has commenced the implementation of the “No Work, No Pay” rule.

It was gathered from a reliable source at the National Universities Commission, NUC, that the government has passed a directive to the various universities governing councils to stop payment of salaries of the striking lecturers.

The ASUU Zonal Chairman in Abuja, Mr Clement Chup confirmed this yesterday after a zonal conference of ASUU, University of Abuja chapter, which took place at the Gwagwalada campus to review the nationwide strike.

He said his colleagues were yet to receive their September salaries.

According to him, “we have resorted to other welfare strategies to cope with the effect of the strike, particularly to contain the various attempts by government to break the resolve of the union. The Federal Government has through the National Universities Commission, directed universities to stop the payment of our salaries effective September this year and since then our salaries have not been paid.

“Part of the welfare strategy, involved distributing food items, giving out soft loans and cash advances to members.”

He urged members of the public to ignore the rumour that the strike has been called off. He said: “Nigerians should disregard rumours making the rounds that the three months old strike has been called off”, adding that “the strike continues until the government demonstrates a positive inclination towards implementing the 2009 agreements and the 2012 Memorandum of Understanding signed by both parties.”

  9. please we should stop insulting Asuu. agreement is agreement, fg should fulfilled their part. negeria have the money to paid.. suppose ur father is a lecture?

  11. ASSU is mad.they shld have waited till next yr.FG would have responded supposing the strike happen next yr ending.FG knws that the youth wn’t vote for the present administration if they dnt agree terms with ASSU.NIGERIA as a country does nt have a government.the president n all is administratives should go to hell.

  12. Many graduate with modern tech r waiting out there 2 forward dier applications. If they r not ready to lecture again, I suggest absolute sack 2 dem. Nonsense! Some students surpose 2 graduate by now bt cos of selfish interest of asuu they r yet 2 seat 4 dier finall year exam.

  14. I wish to appeal to both ASUU and the FG to come to a compromise. Let’s face the facts: the problems/challenges that ASUU is agitating to solve/surmount are not the direct result of present regime mismanagement but as a build-up from past 2 decades of mismanagement and academic decadence in our high institutions of learning. So, our lecturers should not be too rigid with their demands.
    However, GEJ and his cabinet should also show greater commitment and political will to end this malaise bedeviling our higher education in Nigeria.
    Both parties should remember that the devil always find work for an idle hand.
    God will grant ALL parties involved the wisdom to get out of this quagmire.

  15. ASSU should employ other means of negotiation cos they are doing it selfishly without any considration for the nigerian students
