ASUU Members Blow Hot Over Planned Strike..

Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) around the Yola zone, Adamawa State, have said they will not accept any plea from Nigerians to shelve an impending strike.

In a press conference at the NUJ secretariat in Yola on Friday, the Yola Zone said Nigerians should blame the Federal Government for its failure to comply with the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement.

Members of the ASUU, Yola chapter, comprising those at Adamawa State University (ADSU) Mubi, Federal University Gashua (FUGA), Modibbo Adama University (MAU) Yola, Taraba State University (TSU) Jalingo, University of Maiduguri (UNIMAID), and Yobe State University (YSU) Damaturu, said their decision is in the best interest of Nigerian universities.

The ASUU Yola Zonal Coordinator, Comrade Reuben Jonathan, said the Zone convened at the Modibbo Adama University in Yola on Thursday and reviewed the Memorandum of Action (MoA) entered into with the Federal Government on December 23rd, 2020, after prolonged strike action by the union.

Reuben said ASUU was displeased with nonchalant attitudes displayed by government functionaries even after countless calls to address the issues in dispute.

“Recall that in our previous press conference here in Yola on September 15th, 2021, we briefed you on the Government’s refusal and foot-dragging in implementing the said Agreement. Since then, nothing has been done by the Government to address the issues besides propaganda and blackmail.

”The issues remain: Renegotiation of the 2009 Agreement and all efforts by the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the promise made to address the issue of Renegotiation have not yielded any result so far.

“The refusal of the Government to address the issue of Renegotiation has left us on the same salary for 12 years even as the Government has reviewed the minimum wage twice,” Reuben said.

On other failures of the Federal Government which ASUU holds responsible for their consideration for strike action, Reuben said, “On Earned Academic Allowances (EAA), the entitlement was to be paid at the latest in May and June 2021, but as of this moment, nothing has been released to that effect.

“Recall that our union has developed a robust and dynamic system known as the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) which is a better alternative to the pro-corruption Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

“UTAS has been subjected to and passed all the integrity tests without any shortcomings, but beneficiaries of corruption-laden IPPIS have continued to ensure that UTAS does not see the light of day, thereby subjecting our members to hardship.”

  1. This guy's should go and sit down jare. Just bunch of empty barrels making noise but cant do shit. How has has all the strike they have embarked on helped in anyway? They should all fuck off abeg, whenever they are broke and want some Brown ✉️ they go go on strike.

  2. I don't blame them,some of them have not been paid for 3-4 months,while others receive half salary.
    Federal govt should do the needful.

    1. Some have not been paid for 11-13months.Bubu is just using his divide and rule policy on them.Some are paid and the strike is called off with the promise of paying others which never materializes

    2. Don't waste your pity on them dear.

      With how over crowded most tertiary institutions are, these greedy lecturers are making a shit load of money, do you know how much they charge for their text books, which by the way is very compulsory, they sell hand out.

      Don't even get me started on the ones that collect sorting money. What is this noise every quarterly?

      Both the federal government and asuu should all go to Hell for all I care. Ndi nzuzu

  3. The system is corrupt and nothing can be done.

    There was a great COUNTRY called NIGERIA

  4. It's high time we take ASUU to Shiloh
