FG Vows To End Eight Months ASUU Strike Next Week
FG Vows To End Eight Months ASUU Strike Next Week according to the minister of Labour, Dr Chris Ngige in a new statement over the strike
Recall that the academic union of universities have been on strike since February, 2020 over unpaid allowances and Payment system
The federal government’s Payment system known as IPPIS had been rejected by ASUU who claimed that the system is unfavorable
The union then went on to introduce a payment system known as UTAS which was rejected by the federal government
This has led to a standoff between the federal government of Nigeria and the academic union of universities, ASUU, prompting the minister of Labour to react
According to the Minister, Chris Ngige said:
“Even if countries go to war, at the end of the day they come to the negotiation table. I’m inviting them (ASUU) Next week.
We are doing side meetings on our part and we are collating everything.
I’m collating responses from the Accountant General of the Federation’s Office and everybody who has something to do with this matter.
“I’m not looking at that (long) period. I’m an optimist on this matter. By next week, we will conclude this matter.
There are so many options left. We have the labour laws and I have options left to me in the labour laws. I have other channels.”
“UTAS has yet to be ready but government will not discourage them. And we have told them there is no need using the same old method of strike to make demands since such had been deployed since 2017.”
