Another Strike Looms As FG Allegedly Fails To Honour Agreement With ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) might embark on another strike following reports that the federal government is reneging on its earlier agreement with the union.

This position comes two weeks after the lecturers suspended their nine-month-old strike.

In a statement sent to journalists, ASSU noted that the government was yet to pay their December salaries, while “illegal” deductions were still to be refunded.

The statement also accused the government of failing to honour agreements made last year.

It said the government had: “Again failed to honour its agreement on payment of not only outstanding salaries of members ranging from five to eight months; Earned Academic Allowances (EAA) and check off dues illegally deducted before December 31, 2020.”

The lecturers had embarked on strike in March 2020 over government’s refusal to honour the agreement reached with ASUU in 2009.

Recall that the Minister of Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige had earlier promised that the government will keep to its agreement with ASUU.
