The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Abuja zone has made it known that there will be no resumption in public universities until the renegotiated 2009 agreement is signed and implemented, and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution is deployed.
The ASUU Zonal Coordinator, Dr. Salawu Lawal, said this during a press conference at the University of Abuja in Gwagwalada on Monday.
Dr. Lawal reiterated that the strike action is a result of the failure of the Federal Government to sign and implement the draft renegotiated 2009 ASUU-FGN Agreement submitted to it by the Prof. Munzali Committee in May 2021.
Secondly, is the deployment for use in the Nigerian university system, the home-grown payment and personnel solution called UTAS developed by ASUU as a replacement for the failed IPPIS.
According to him, members are ready to return to their duty posts as soon as these demands are met by the Federal Government.
ASUU, Benin Zone, also pleaded with Nigerians to join the union in rescuing what it described as a “dying university system”.
Also, the ASUU Chairman in the University of Ibadan, Prof. Ayo Akinwole, in a statement has challenged the Minister of State for Education, Chief Emeka Nwajiuba, to make public his salaries and allowances, adding that he should tell Nigerians how much the government has owed him since he became Minister.
