Strike: FG’s offer in resolving our demands still far from expectations – ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that the
offer from the Federal Government towards resolving the demands of
ASUU as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of Action (MoA) is still
fluid and far from expectations.

ASUU, in Strike Bulletin 8 signed by its President, Professor Biodun
Ogunyemi, a copy of which was obtained by DAILY POST on Thursday in
Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, asked its members to await rapidly
unfolding developments from the strike.

As a union, ASUU said that it will not participate in the conduct of
2019 elections but its members may voluntarily participate.

Ogunyemi, in the bulletin, said the proposal from government towards
resolving the demands of ASUU as contained in the 2017 MoA is still
fluid and far from expectations.

He said, "Though some progress has been made with respect to
discussion with Government agents (The Minister of Labour and
Employment as well as Minister of Education), at the moment, the
proposal from Government towards resolving the demand of ASUU as
contained in 2017 MoA and Strike Bulletin 1 is still too fluid and far
from expectations.

"Hence, it is the view of the NSCC that members should await further
developments which are rapidly unfolding.

"In accordance with the ASUU's long standing position, ASUU as a union
will not participate in the conduct of 2019 general elections,
although members may voluntarily participate in the conduct of the
elections.

"However, members are prohibited from participating in the election
processes using any material that bears ASUU or relates to the union."
