The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has given a new update as it’s one month warning strike ends on Monday.
Speaking on Saturday, The National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said The National Executive Council, NEC of the union would decide next line of action.
Osodeke disclosed that ASUU will hold its meeting on Sunday in Abuja to decide what to do next.
He said: “I cannot say this is what we are going to do next. It is the NEC that is going to decide that and we are having our NEC meeting on Sunday.
”We are an organised union and the majority opinion carries the day. Whatever the meeting decides will be communicated to all, thank you,” he said.
ASUU had commenced a nationwide strike following what it called failure of the federal government to meet it’s demands and fulfill it’s promises, DAILY GIST reports.
Osodeke blamed the federal government for the ongoing strike, alleging that apart from not implementing the 2020 MOA, the government also failed to convene the regular implementation monitoring meeting as agreed.
He noted that calling off the industrial action depended entirely on the Federal Government as members were determined not to shift ground until their demands are met.
ASUU demands include the renegotiation of the ASUU/FG 2009 agreement, sustainability of the university autonomy by deploying the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) to replace the government’s “imposed” Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).
The union has also demanded the release of the reports of visitation panels to federal universities and distortions in salary payment challenges.
