FG’s Offer Is Still Far From Expectation – ASUU


The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, yesterday, promised not to partake in the 2019 general elections.

President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi revealed this recently.

He said, said: “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.”

ASUU also used this chance to speak on its battle with the Federal Government over the minimum wage saying that the offer from the Federal Government towards ending the strike as contained in the 2017 Memorandum of Action, MoA, is still quite far from expectations.

“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.”
