We would Suspend The Strike!! ASUU Governing Body

This is to inform all students whose school are under ASUU, that ASUU has just announced and made it public that they have no plan to suspend the strike!.

This is coming from the National President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr Nasir Isa Fagge, who has accused the Federal Government of paying lip service to education in Nigeria and vowed that the on-going indefinite strike action will not be suspended until the union’s demands are met by the federal government.

Dr Nasir Isa Fagge also revealed that ASUU had duly communicated the Federal Government through the Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Ahmed on the strike contrary to the position of the minister that government was not officially informed about the current asuu strike.

Dr Nasir Isa Fagge, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, the 4th of July 29013, said that university lecturers have come to the realisation that the Nigerian government was not serious about addressing the decay and rotting the university system in the country.

Dr Fagge also said that ASUU was quite aggrieved that the report of the Needs Assessment Committee of Nigerian Universities has been dumped by the Federal Government.

According to Fagge, the report encapsulated the decay and rot in the nation’s university system.

Dr Fagge went further to say this: “You are quite familiar with the Needs Assessment report on public universities in Nigeria.”

“The report was submitted to the federal government in July 2012, which is exactly one year now, and up till now the federal government has down nothing about it.”

Dr Fagge also added that the position of ASUU was that government must implement the recommendations of the committee, stressing that the committee gave far-reaching recommendations that if implemented would bring about a dramatic turn-around in the Nigerian University system.

The ASUU President also said that: “They were told that the report has been forwarded to the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and the National Economic Council (NEC) and nothing has happened yet, which is to say that the ASUU strike will continue till something is done, which is that the ASUU demands are met!.

“We are not convinced that federal government is serious about addressing the rot in the nation’s university system.

Government is not keen about addressing the problems in education in Nigeria.

The Nigerian Federal Government is giving lame excuses.

“So, we are at liberty to withdraw our services when we see that the right thing is not being done.
Strike is a fundamental right of a worker. We will not suspend the strike as long as government remains indifferent to our demands,” National President of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr Nasir Isa Fagge said!.

    Assu and FG, its high time you both put an end to this rebelion, you should knw that the issue of strike is noted in and outside the nation, we students have realised that one of you is lookin for the cake to enjoy. Anyhow, you should know that God is a jealous God. Pity us, bcos some of us have forgotten our Reg no, our dignity have equally been trampled upon such that illitrate begins to question us when we will graduate a 4yr course. God bless you if you repent.

  21. This agreement can be implemented gradually or by peace-meal. I sympathized with the leadership of ASUU. I agree that the education sector should be revamped but if you think or believe that it going to be because you go on strike, i doubt your ability to succeed. ASUU should draw a timeline for full implementation of whatsoever agreement that is. For effective implementation, it should be monitored.

  22. Draw a timeline for implementation of the agreement between ASUU and FG. ASUU go back to work while implementation continues.

  23. This is the real time 4 Asuu to embark on strike in other not to be embarrazed by Nigeria people.

  24. How i wished, the sons of the politicians in abroad studing are sent back home bcos of the ugly lingering strike planted at their home country, bcos of their soul called fathers in politics. . .
