Strike: We’ve met all ASUU’s demands, FG insists

The Federal Government through the Minister of State Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba on Monday insisted that the Federal government has met all the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba said this in an interview with reporters on the sidelines of the commemoration of the 2022 Commonwealth Celebration in Abuja.

ASUU, on Monday, announced a rollover of its strike action by two months at the end of a meeting of its National Executive Council held at its National Secretariat on Sunday at the University of Abuja.

The union, in a statement by its President ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, on Monday morning at the end of the NEC meeting, said the eight-week extension was to give the government enough time to address its demands in “concrete terms.

However, Nwajiuba during the interview, insisted that the Federal Government had met all the demands of the union.

According to him, all the earned allowances, as well as revitalisation funds, had been released by the government.

He said: “ASUU announced and we met and everything that they have demanded, we have done all of them including the earned allowances and the revitalisation fund; they choose to extend it for two months maybe.”

ASUU  accused the federal government of working against the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), a payment platform designed by ASUU as an alternative to the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) of the government.

Despite a series of meetings with the Federal Government team chaired by Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen Chris Ngige, both sides have failed to reach an agreement.
