The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reportedly disclosed that the Federal Government’s proposal towards the demands of ASUU Strike as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of Action(MOA) is still flexible and can last longer than expected.
The ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi advised its members to await swiftly unfolding developments from the Ongoing Industrial Strike Action.
Following a recent bulletin from the President, he said the contributions from the Government towards resolving the demands of ASUU is very Slim.
In addition, he said the Union will not participate in the conduct of 2019 election but its members may voluntarily participate.
“Though some progress has been made with respect to discussion with Government agents (The Minister of Labour and Employment as well as Minister of Education), at the moment, the proposal from Government towards resolving the demand of ASUU as contained in 2017 MoA and Strike Bulletin 1 is still too fluid and far from expectations.
“Hence, it is the view of the NSCC that members should await further developments which are rapidly unfolding.
“In accordance with the ASUU’s long standing position, ASUU as a union will not participate in the conduct of 2019 general elections, although members may voluntarily participate in the conduct of the elections.
“However, members are prohibited from participating in the election processes using any material that bears ASUU or relates to the union.” he said
