List of ASUU’s 7 dispute point, meets FG over strike today

The Federal Government through the Ministry of Labour and Employment and leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities are expected  to meet in Abuja  Thursday  morning, over the   strike  in  public universities since November 5.

The meeting would  focus on reviewing the 2017 Memorandum of Action and renegotiating the unimplemented areas,

the memorandum highlighted the seven-point issues in dispute.

They are the  funding of revitalisation of universities, earned academic allowances, staff schools, pension matters, salary shortfalls, Treasury Single Account exemption and state universities.

Federal Government delegation led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, would meet with ASUU executives led by the National President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, in Abuja to review  the September 2017 Memorandum of Action.

ASUU  said  during  its National Executive Council meeting in Akure, Ondo State, on  November 4 that it asked its members to resume strike because of certain unimplemented areas in the 2017 MoA, which suggested the Federal Government’s insincerity to the demands by the lecturers.

Ministries of Labour and Employment as well as Education had yet to reply to the letters written by ASUU since November 5.

On the same day, Tuesday,it rather  wrote  ASUU inviting the union leaders to  a meeting today.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Federal Government Implementation Committee of the FG/ASUU agreement, Dr Wale Babalakin, has said ASUU must come to the negotiating table for permanent solutions to the issues, based on verifiable data.

Babalakin, while speaking in an interview, said the team remained committed to resolving the recurrent disputes militating against the progress of the tertiary education sector.

He said, “Information available is that the government manages to pay the salaries and sometimes the basic overheads of federal universities.
