ASUU strike: Ngige denies being responsible for the 9 months old strike identifying those behind it

assu strike


ASUU has been on strike for about nine months due to the federal government’s alleged inability to meet the 2009 agreement reached.


The federal government  recently has promised to pay all outstanding allowances owed the union.


On Thursday 17, Dec. the Federal Government, blamed the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU) for the prolonged strike.


This was disclosed in a statement by the Media Office of the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.


Ngige maintained that ASUU has refused to reciprocate federal government’s offer.


In his words, “It is rather ASUU which has bluntly refused to reciprocate the Federal Government offers by refusing to either teach, conduct researches or engage in other academic values for which they are paid, that should be held responsible.


“Strangely, ASUU claims ‘patriotism’ as the basis for this prolonged industrial action, forcing every patriot to raise concern over this weird definition of patriotism by ASUU officials.


“Living by its words, the Federal Government has fulfilled all the demands over which ASUU went on strike on March 9, 2020.


“It is therefore preposterous for the University of Jos chapter of ASUU under Dr. Maigoro to refer to these concrete steps taken by the Federal Government as a “promissory note” with which Nigerians shouldn’t expect ASUU to call off the strike.” the statement read.
