Lecturers Cant work on Empty Stomachs says ASUU
It is likely that students will continue to stay at home despite the Federal government’s directive that all educational institutions should resume by Monday next week being October 12th as ASUU has decided to ignore the directives.
Mr Biodun Ogunyemi hinted that with the way the Nigerian government is the negotiations, Nigerian should be ready for a long-drawn strike.
The ASUU president also criticized the Accountant-general of the Federation.
The AGF has withheld salaries of our members. The salaries withheld range from three months to eight months and I don’t think that is good negotiations. If you think you can use hunger as a weapon of war against Nigerian academics, it means the government is not sincere about building an enviable university system in Nigeria
However, Peter Adeyemi, General secretary of NASU had questions of his own,
How can someone in the Federal Ministry of Education be saying our strike is uncalled for?
Government started implementing the IPPIS and started shortchanging our members. If we did not agree to key into the platform, they would call us irresponsible. But we have discovered that they are not transparent. The problem started in March. We will only call off the strike when they correct all the anomalies. Some of our members were shortchanged, while some were not paid at all. There are a whole lot them.Peter Adeyemi
