Govt Must Meet All Demands, ASUU Insist

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Tuesday declared that it has no intention of pausing the current strike, just of ending it completely.

However, it said that such can only occur when all demands have been satisfied.

Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, president of the union, speaking at an Abuja press conference.

“We want to end strike. We are not suspending the strike. You can only end strike when all the demands have been met,” he said.

Osodeke acknowledged certain strike participants’ efforts but emphasized that “it is not over until it is over”

Regarding media allegations that the Federal Government intends to raise ASUU members’ pay by 100%, Osodeke said, “We are not aware of any new agreement. If the government wants to negotiate with us, they know the right channel.”

In a precent interview, Osodeke claimed that since the union’s most recent meeting with the Prof. Nimi Briggs renegotiation committee on June 16, 2022, the government had yet to call or extend an invitation to it.
