Strike: We Are Awaiting FG's Response To Our Demands - ASUU

Speaking in a telephone chat with our correspondent, the National President of ASUU,  Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said his union had done its best in the circumstance.

When contacted, Prof. Briggs said his committee had met with and had done its assignment.

Recall that went on a four-week warning strike on February 14 this year and has extended the strike twice.

First, by eight weeks and secondly by 12 weeks.

Among the issues in contention are staff welfare, payment of Earned Academic Allowance, payment of Revitalisation Fund of N200 billion yearly for at least six years to provide facilities in the universities, stoppage of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS, as the payment platform in the university system among others.

However, the government is blaming the shortage of funds for its inability to meet some of the demands, while the union is accusing the government of not getting its priorities right.
