ASUU Strike Will Soon Come To An End – Ngige

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige,  noted that the Issue of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, would soon come to an end.

Ngige stated this during an interview, on Tuesday, on Channels TV.

The Minister further stated that the Ministries of Finance, Education, Labour and Employment and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation will meet with the body.

“The issue of ASUU will soon come to an end,” he said. “Two reasons ASUU have called the Federal Government represented by Finance and the Accountant-General Office and their direct employers, the Ministry of Education to come for the test.”

This is coming three days after ASUU denied calling off its nationwide industrial action which started in March.

Vice President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, noted that the strike is still ongoing until the Federal Government meets their demands.

ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, also vowed that the union would sustain its ongoing strike action until its requirements were met.

Ogunyemi said ASUU was asking the Federal Government to implement the 2012 universities’ needs assessment.
