ASUU threatens another Industrial action

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has threatened to go on another strike action following the failure of the Federal government to implement the memorandum of Action they reached in 2020.

ASUU members in the North East held a meeting in Adamawa state on Sunday, December 12, where they appealed to Nigerians to lend their voices to the calls to the Federal government to implement the memorandum of action they reached for them to call off its 9-months old strike in December 2020.

The union said Nigerians should blame the Federal government if it embarks on a fresh round of strike action as it may be difficult to resolve the lingering issues with the government.

''It would be very uncharitable for Nigerians to blame ASUU this time around. ASUU is the only organization that keeps listening to public opinions. It is the government that said don't worry we will do this, we go off strike and you did not do it. What is there that the government cannot do? A student in medical college doesn't know what i telescope to measure BP? They say tell them Theory. We are teaching today and we say according to a book in 1953 when our mates are using high digitals in COVID period.'' Musa Abdullahi, former ASUU financial secretary said

Also speaking, Zonal coordinator of ASUU in Yola, Reuben Jonathan, called on all concerned citizens especially religious leaders and traditional rulers to prevail on the Federal government to implement the agreement reached so they can shelve the proposed strike action.

The leadership of the union had in November threatened to resume the suspended strike action following what it described as unfaithfulness of the Federal Government in the implementation of the terms of the agreement in the Memorandum of Action (MoA) signed by both parties upon which the last strike action was suspended.
