The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has vowed that the federal government must meet demands until strike is called off.
The union’s president Professor Emmanuel Osodeke who urge it members to remain steadfast as the battle of struggling will yield result soon.
According to him“As the struggle continues, our members are commended for their commitment and steadfastness in the patriotic struggle for the survival of the university system in our country.
“Our members are particularly applauded for keeping faith with the union in spite of the hardship imposed on our families as a result of the stoppage of salaries. They have made the statement loud and clear that we are not beggars and, as a result, hunger is an impotent instrument to break our resolve.
“Our cast-iron resolve has forced the government to sit down and negotiate with us. We have had five meetings with the Federal Government team and two meetings with the Minister of Education. The renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement is progressing smoothly and has reached an advanced stage.
“However, we must remain focused to the end of this struggle. UTAS (University Transparency and Accountability Solution) has been tested for the third time. So far, NITDA (National Information Technology Development Agency) has tested UTAS and UPS and will start testing IPPIS next week. We are undeterred by the antics of some government officials in this respect.
“We are on the threshold of victory. Let us keep faith with the union. A people united can never be defeated” he said
The varsity teaching staff have been on national strike since 14th of February, 2022 to press forth it demands.
The union who began the national strike as a one month warning strike is not on it fourth months as the government fails to meet it demands.
