Image
RE: FG Order VC’s To Reopen Universities Though not surprised by the so-called order from the most insensitive government ever in the history of our dear country, Nigeria as regard to the fundamental rights of Nigerian masses, which is right to education. It is quite clear to everyone who cares to follow updates concerning industrial action embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) since middle of February, 2022, that the present government does not have the political will to address some of the reasons if not all that made university based unions to embark on the longest strike that has never been possible under previous administrations in the history of this nation. However, it is important to straighten the records, Nigerian Public universities were never closed or locked down.

*NANS Meeting with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, The APC Presidential Flag Bearer* In our continuous efforts in advocating for the end of the prolonged ASUU Strike, I led the National Executives of NANS and stakeholders to meet with the Presidential Aspirant of the APC to annex his contacts and capacity to prevail on ASUU and the FG to put an end to the protracted industrial action.

 ASUU strike: Nationwide bl谩莽k贸ut looms as workers threaten to sh煤t d贸wn power sector  Workers in the power sector have threatened to sh煤td贸wn electricity supply in the country should Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, declare a nationwide protest over the protracted industrial crises in the country’s educational sector. Under the aegis of the National Union of Electricity Employees, NUEE, the workers argued that the carefree attitude of government towards the continued closure of schools is a sorry state in the process of Nigeria’s development towards nationhood. In a statement by its General Secretary, Joe Ajaero, NUEE said it “is deeply s脿dden茅d and appalled by the impasse between the Federal Government of Nigeria and Unions in the Tertiary Academic Sector (Universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education and Research Institutes) which has avoidably lingered”. It went on: “This deadl贸莽k which has lasted for several months with the students staying at home; is undoubtedly exposing the s

 Strike: We Will Call Off Strike Moment FG Accepts UTAS – ASUU The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has challenged the federal government to accept the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) payment platform for it to call off the ongoing strike.

Osodeke said, “Let government tell us they have finished testing the UTAS and sign the agreement, then tomorrow we will call off the strike. “We challenge the government, when would they sign the agreement? When would they accept UTAS? These are the two questions we should ask Nigerian government,” he stated.

Until FG Accepts UTAS, Honour Our Agreement, No Reopening Of Varsities – ASUU President Declares

Image
 The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, has declared that until the Federal Government accepts the Union's demands and honours their agreement, no universities will be reopened. This is a strong stance taken by the Union in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the Federal Government's decision to reopen schools. ASUU is demanding that the Federal Government honour their agreement in full, including the payment of salaries and allowances that are owed to members. The Union is also demanding that the Federal Government provide adequate funding for universities so that they can properly function. Osodeke's declaration means that there is a possibility of a prolonged closure of universities, which would have a negative impact on students and staff alike. However, the Union is standing firm on its position and is prepared to negotiate with the Federal Government in order to reach a resolution. The first main point is that

 Kperogi lambasts Education Minister Adamu Adamu over alleged negligence towards ASUU strike.  The essay will explore three main points: the reasons for the strike, the government's response, and the implications of the strike. The reasons for the strike are many and varied, but the main one is the government's failure to meet its promises to the education sector. ASUU has been demanding better funding for universities, improved working conditions, and increased salaries for professors. The government has failed to meet these demands, and ASUU has been on strike for over a month now. The government's response to the strike has been lacklustre, to say the least. Education Minister Adamu Adamu has been accused of negligence and of not doing enough to resolve the situation. The government has offered to meet some of ASUU's demands, but not all of them. ASUU has rejected the government's offer, and the strike continues. The implications of the strike are far-reaching. U

NLC plans one-day protest over ASUU strike The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has directed its affiliate bodies to mobilise for a one-day strike next week over the lingering strike by ASUU. The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has directed its affiliate bodies to mobilise for a one-day strike. This strike is to protest the recent increase in fuel prices and the removal of fuel subsidies by the Nigerian government. The NLC is demanding that the government reverse its decision on fuel prices and reinstate the fuel subsidy. The NLC's decision to call for a strike has been met with mixed reactions from the public. Some people support the NLC's decision, believing that it is the only way to get the government to listen to the people's demands. Others are against the strike, saying that it will only cause more hardship for the already struggling masses. Whatever one's opinion on the matter, there is no doubt that the NLC's decision to call for a strike will have a significant

Rollover: 4 Weeks Left For ASUU To Decide Fate Of Ongoing Industrial Action

Image
 Rollover: 4 Weeks Left For ASUU To Decide Fate Of Ongoing Industrial Action. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is currently on strike and has been for over 4 weeks. The strike is a result of the failure of the Nigerian government to meet the demands of the union, which include improved funding for the education sector, among others. With no end in sight, the question now is what will happen to the students who are affected by the strike? There are currently 4 weeks left until the end of the semester, and if the strike is not resolved by then, it is likely that there will be a "rollover" of students to the next semester. This means that students will not be able to graduate on time and will have to extend their time at university. While a rollover may not be the ideal solution, it may be the only option if the strike is not resolved soon. It is important to remember that the students are not to blame in this situation, and that the Nigerian government is the one
