The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Federal Government are yet to reach a final agreement after so many meetings held in the past few months.
Recall that Last week, the minister of Labour, Chris Ngige announced to the nation that the strike will end latest on the 9th Dec 2020. He revealed that the government will pay the withheld salaries as soon as school resumes.
However, ASUU Chairman, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi had debunked the rumor, says that they are yet to reach a final agreement and hence the strike continues.
Stechitegist gathered that Chris Ngige further revealed that the leadership of ASUU had promised to present the latest government offer to their members and that they will ruminate on how to suspend the strike before they will converge again for a final decision.
Unfortunately, ASUU Chairman insists that unless the withheld salaries are paid, Schools will still be shut down.
This statement has got the minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige displeased with the situation and queried ASUU that they are trespassing above the law.
He further said that the Federal government has tried to fulfill almost all the demands of ASUU.
Out of 9 months salaries, they have been able to pay 5, remains 4 months which are July, August, September, and October.
But still ASUU leadership claim that they can’t go back to class to teach on an empty stomach.
Now this has become a state of disagreement between both parties.
Do you think ASUU made the right decision by turning down the request of the FG for schools to resume now until all the withheld salaries are paid?
