ASUU may begin a new strike action
The Academic Staff Union of Universities have asked the federal government to clarify unresolved questions before the suspension of ten-month strike to secure university peace.
The Unions say the government owes its members in different universities, with between three and 14 months arrears being owed.
This was conveyed by the President of ASUU, Prof. Emanuel Osodeke in an interview with Sunday PUNCH.
When asked what would happen if the government failed to comply, he said he would continue what his predecessor, Prof. Biodun Oguniemi stopped.
“This is continuity, we have collective leadership. So this is a continuation where my immediate predecessors stopped. This (crisis) is not over. The government has the ability to see that the crisis is over. It’s just about implementing these things,” Osodeke said.
According to him, after developing the University Transparency and Accountability Solution as an alternative to the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, while people are being paid what pleases the office of the Accountant General of the Federation.
Osodeke said, “You know we went on strike until the end of last year. We have reached an agreement with the government on the implementation of unresolved issues. We hope that the government will respond to this issue in a timely manner.
