INTERESTING! See Method Federal Govt Wants To Use To End ASUU Strike

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, says the Federal Government has resolved to take the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to court because talks between both parties have collapsed.

It was reported that the court case came up a few days after the Federal Government announced pay rise for university teachers, and promised that N150 billion “shall be provided for in the 2023 Budget as funds for the revitalisation of federal universities, which is to be disbursed to the Institutions in the First Quarter of the year.”

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, who made the announcement during a meeting with Pro-Chancellors and Vice Chancellors of Federal Universities last Tuesday, disclosed that the government would not sign any other agreement it cannot implement.

The Education Minister said President Muhammadu Buhari had warned the government’s team involved in the negotiation with ASUU against signing an agreement that the government would not be able to fulfil.

But the Minister’s announcement on the pay rise did not go down well with the varsity lecturers as they rejected it.

In an interview with Daily Trust, the President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, asked the government to keep its pay rise, insisting that the government must sign what they agreed on during their collective bargain.
