15, December 2020

It saddens every student's heart to remember that they've been at home for the past 9 months, all because of the ongoing ASUU strike between lecturers and the Federal Government.

The strike started together with the Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020.

The nine-month-old strike, which was compounded by the introduction of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), had paralysed academic activities in all public universities.

The Federal Government and the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) meeting on resolution of the resolution of the strike action by academics was cancelled on Monday December 14, for the second time in a row.


Though no reason was given for the cancellation of the parley scheduled to discuss the union’s current strike, it was however learnt that ASUU was still consulting with its organs on the latest offer by the Federal Government to the striking university teachers.

It was gathered that ASUU was still consulting with its organs on the latest offer by the Federal Government to the striking university teachers.

The Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations in the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Mr Charles Akpan, announced the postponement in a text message.

The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, in his reaction to the development, said the leadership of the union did not agree on any meeting with the government as consultations on both sides were still ongoing.


It would be recalled that the government had during the November 27 meeting with the union, pledged to pay N40 billion as the Earned Allowance and N30bn for the revitalization of the university system bringing the total payment to N70 billion.

It also reconstituted a committee to renegotiate the 2009 agreement between the Federal Government and universities-based unions, as demanded by ASUU.

The committee is headed by Prof. Munzali Jibril, the Pro-Chancellor of the Federal University Lafia in Nasarawa State and Chairman of the Committee of Pro-Chancellors of Federal Universities.
