ASUU Postpone Strike, while Accusing Government of Blackmail


By Muyiwa Adekojede

ASUU has postponed its decision on striking, saying it is still consulting.

Following the meeting of the union’s National Executive Council, the union released a press release.

ASUU president, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, signed the press statement entitled, “Enough of Blackmail.”

Specifically, the meeting was held on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja.

The meeting focused on reviewing the level of implementation of the FGN-ASUU Memorandum of Action of December 23, 2020 as well as other related questions.

According to the lecturers, they regretted the Federal Government’s refusal to create an interministerial committee to review the draft 2009 FGN-ASUU Agreement.

ASUU had announced earlier that it planned to launch a strike over the federal government’s failure to respond to its demands.

In addition to earning academic allowances, ASUU said it is demanding a review of the NUC Act in order to stop state governments from establishing more universities without disbursing funds to the existing universities in their state.

In addition to adopting the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), they also demanded the discontinuation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and distortion of salary payments.

The release of accumulated promotion arrears, review and signing of the Draft Renegotiation Agreement between ASUU and the FGN are also pending.

    But, think on this, what if you wrote a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your
    website, but what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean ASUU Postpone Strike, while Accusing Government of Blackmail – UNILAG NEWS is a
    little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles
    to get people interested. You might try adding a video or
    a related pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
