The national president of academic Staff union of Universities ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi said the union is still consulting with their members on the agreement with the federal government, he disclosed this while been interviewed with the journalist on Tuesday, Prof Biodun has said, the union is still consulting on what is reply will be to the offer the federal government made to end its eight months strike. H
e further stress out that, the union have what the government is offering and have transmitted same to their members national wide, the union is consulting on what the next line of action will be and as for how long the consultation would take, he cannot say, but it may go beyond this week.
Remember that Federal government have agreed to pay a sum of N70bn for both revertalisation of Universities and salary arrears of ASUU members . However, ASUU have agreed to call off the strike only if their demand is implemented
Abdulgaffar Anoka, PhD, a senior lecturer and also a top ASUU member enjoyed students to look ASUU as the good driver of the university who is just fighting for the public universities not to collapse like the four refineries, Nitel, Ajaokuta steel and many other govt owned companies. If all the drivers of public Institutions fought like ASUU, maybe most of the crashed public institutions would have survived. If Lecturers decided to MILT (manage it like that) and continue with the journey, the vehicle may crash with all of us inside.
The success of ASUU struggle is a win for the public universities, and a win for Nigeria and Nigerians!
