Ngige, according to a statement by Labour and Employment Ministry’s Acting Head of Press and Public Relations, Patience Onuobia, said he feels for his children and their contemporaries affected by the strike.
His words: “In the ongoing ASUU imbroglio, I’m the conciliator. I bring them to negotiate with their employers – the Ministry of Education and the National University Commission as well as IPPS, the office of the Accountant -General of the Federation, all under the Ministry of Finance.
“At the end of every negotiation, we put down what everybody has agreed on in writing and add timelines for implementation
“When conciliation fails, the Minister is under obligation… to transmit the results of the negotiation to the Industrial Arbitration Panel or to National Industrial Court of Nigeria…”
”But let me tell you. There is nothing new about ASUU strike. It has been a recurrent decimal. In the last 20 years, ASUU has gone on strike, 16 times. So, there is nothing new as such.
“What is new however is that I have done what Napoleon could not do . You can ask them”
“I’m sure that in the innermost part of their hearts , they can’t sweep away my untiring efforts. I’m the only conciliator lately, who has conciliated and put timelines on agreements and pushed all the parties, the government side to implement and stick to the timelines. Such fidelity wasn’t there hitherto.” He said
