The true reason we put off our eight-month strike – ASUU

Posted by

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has revealed why its eight-month strike was put off.

According to ASUU National President Emmanuel Osodeke, the eight-month strike was called off as a result of a court decision and public petitions.

Osodeke revealed this during an appearance on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

“As you can see from our news release, and despite interventions from the Speaker (Gbajabiamila) and others, the main reason we are resuming is to comply with the industrial court’s decision.” The difficulties have not been completely resolved, and no agreements have been signed.

“We are restarting because we are a law-abiding organization that does not want to break the law.”

“We are also hoping that the Speaker’s promised assistance would fix this situation in a timely manner.” As a result, the difficulties have not been resolved, but we will resume due to the court injunction.”

After the National Industrial Court ruled against the union, an appeals court ordered ASUU to return to class.

However, the ASUU National President also blamed the strike on the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.

Negotiation, according to Osodeke, is the best way to resolve trade conflicts involving academics.

“However, one of the ministers, the Minister of Labour, believes that forcing them to attend class is the greatest solution.” But, because of the Nigerian people’s interest – the pupils, their parents, and the Speaker who is interfering – our members will educate,” he continued.
