Fresh Crisis: ASUU strike set to commence in Nigerian universities

By Adenosine (M)September 13, 2016, 10:40:41 AM
September 13, 2016 Agency Report

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, said on Monday that it would commence a warning strike on October 2.

A statement signed by Ben Ugheoke, the Chairman, University of Abuja chapter of ASUU, stated that the Federal Government had failed to embark on meaningful dialogue with the union.

“We have tried to dialogue with the Federal Government but they have been playing games with us; we will start with a warning strike to show them we are not jokers.

“ASUU has being trying to get the attention of the Federal Government to intervene in the academic system of universities across Nigeria but it has all been abortive.

“Consequently, ASUU will give a warning strike which will start on Oct. 2nd.

“The strike will last for one week, and if they do not give us listening ears, we will start the indefinite strike in November,” Mr. Ugheoke said in the statement.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that ASUU, had at a recent news briefing accused the Federal Government of reneging on the 2009 agreement with the union.

ASUU’s Coordinator, Abuja Zone, Theophilus Lagi, also said in the statement that the government had only implemented 30 per cent of the provisions of Universities Needs Assessment document.

He said that the fund was disbursed indiscriminately to university councils as a fall out of the six months industrial action the union embarked upon in 2009.

Mr. Lagi urged the Federal Government to fully implement the 2009 agreement it reached with the union in order to avert another industrial action by the nation’s public universities.

“The struggle to implement the 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement is not about the union; it is not about the personal benefits of the members only.

“The current issues in contention include funding of universities for revitalisation in line with the Memorandum of Understanding the Federal Government and ASUU had signed in 2013.

“Re-negotiation of the FGN/ASUU 2009 agreement ASUU believes will reposition the entire education sector.

“We also demand the facilitation of the registration of the Nigerian Universities Pension Management Company (NUPEMCO), among other issues in the FG/ASUU 2009 agreement,” he said.

Any disputes results in strike.... Asus should consider other options except strike... Strike does not help anybody. Students suffer the most from strikes.

Honestly this ASUU strike has met almost anyone that graduated from a Nigerian university going back almost 50 years!
There are several contributors to the problem, one of which is that governments (federal and state) directly own and operate universities in Nigeria. Secondly, unionization is still very much alive in Nigeria -it has been "killed" in many developed countries.
I like unions, but they sometimes get overbearing. In a country like Nigeria though, we can't afford not to have unions afterall the system is yet to fully function as designed. Without unions, government and even private operators of schools can do a lot of harm to the workers in the schools.
Typical catch 22 situation.

ASUU is deceitful. They will come up with several university need and their major aim will be the last one. Once their aim is achieved they suspend the strike

The end of ASUU is infinite except they are scrapped by Federal Government which seems impossible to me. They will keep saying they are fighting for the future of Federal Universities, apparently they are fighting for their pocket. Most lecturers don't even enjoy the benefits of this strike because nothing reach them. They are fighting for the future of the Universities without considering the future of those students in the Universities. If there is no student in the school with future are you fighting for. Everything about ASUU is just selfishness.
