ASUU: We Will Not Take Part in Any ‘Renegotiations’ with FG

ASUU Declares One-Month Warning Strike – Channels Television

By Muyiwa Adekojede

Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has pledged not to participate in any renegotiations with the federal government over its 2009 agreement with that body.

Union officials took the position as the government plans to reconstitute a renegotiation team on the 2009 agreement following the ongoing warning strike by the Union.

A statement had been released by the Federal Ministry of Education regarding the setting up of a committee team for the renegotiation.

“All advisers and observers in the Federal Government/University-based Unions 2009 agreements Re-negotiation Team are expected to attend the inauguration,” part of the statement reads.

As a reaction to the federal government’s announcement that it had reconstituted the committee, the president of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said his organization would not participate in it.

In an exclusive interview with Vanguard on Thursday evening, Prof. Osodeke said the lecturers were awaiting the government’s decision to implement their demands so they can return to the classroom.

“We don’t know what they (federal government) are talking about, we have nothing to negotiate with the government. As far as we are concerned, we have concluded negotiation with the government,” ASUU President explained.

Recall that the federal government had earlier announced the reconstitution of a team to renegotiate the 2009 agreement with ASUU.

Malam Adamu Adamu, Minister of Education who headed the renegotiation team in Abuja, explained that the goal was to “speedily bring to a conclusion, all outstanding issues in the 2009 agreement to achieve the desired industrial peace on our campuses.”
