ASUU Speaks On Leaving On New Strike

There are no ongoing strikes by lecturers, as indicated by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) president Emmanuel Osodeke.

Following a ruling for the federal government’s “no work, no pay” strategy, the tales have been flowing.

 

As per Reports, the academic calendar of Nigeria’s public institutions have been over and again disrupted throughout the years as scholastics on strike have fought monetary setbacks, disappointing working circumstances, and infrastructure crumbling.

In 2022, ASUU started its sixteenth strike in 23 years. Eight months passed during the strike.

 

ASUU’s strike was required to be postponed by the National Industrial Court (NIC) in September 2022 while a claim was being heard.

 

Because of its ‘no work, no pay’ strategy, the federal government demanded that the lecturers wouldn’t be paid for the time they were on strike.

The government’s position regarding the matter was certified by the court on May 30.

 

On August 19, during a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting at the University of Maiduguri, ASUU discussed the matter again.

 

The ‘no work, no pay’ policy, as indicated by Osodeke, ignored the truth that simply the showing piece of academic activity was suspended during the strike.

 

There have been reports circumventing that the association is thinking about another strike in light of the modern court’s choice.

 

In his reaction, Osodeke referred to the reports as “Malicious & Unfortunate”.

 

Promotion arrears was one of the subjects talked about during the Borno NEC meeting of ASUU.

 

The constrained enrolment of academics into the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) was faulted by the association for bends in promotion arrears.

 

The IPPIS work racketeering incident, as indicated by Osodeke, has “eroded the tradition of university employment.”

 

As per him, ASUU was informed regarding the inescapable academic departure from public Universities because of horrible working circumstances.
