ASUU: Don't Blame Federal Government Again For ASUU Strike - says Emeka Nwajiuba.

It is now more than seven months, that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have been on strike, on the issue platform of payment, Academic Earned Allowances, Revitalization fund and Memorandum of Agreement MOA among others

Several meetings were held and there seems to be headway. As at Tuesday November 4, 2020, the meeting ended in a setback because, Federal Government insisted that ASUU should register on Integrated Payroll and Personel Information System (IPPIS) in order to receive the Academic Earned Allowances and Salary.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba said that, the ball is in ASUU's court now and the federal government is not responsible for the lingering strike anymore. Also, he said nothing should stop the striking lecturers from returning to classrooms.

Nwajiuba added that, the government has done its best and if ASUU wants salary, it should get registered on IPPIS. He said, If the lecturer want to, they can enter classrooms at anytime because nothing is holding them back.
