The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) speaks on it’s progress in putting an end to the ongoing strike after making some arrangements with the federal government.
During the National Executive Council meeting at the union’s headquarters at the University of Abuja on Monday morning, Ben Goong, the spokesperson for the Federal Ministry of Education stated in an interview with THE PUNCH that the government had taken all possible steps to end the strike.
The strike commenced on Monday, February 14, 2022, is said to still continue until over 80% of their demand is met.
In their words:
”As regards the next steps, the government has already inaugurated a committee to harmonize the IPPIS, UTAS and UP3. This will ensure that the government will pay with only one payment platform that will harmonize all technical peculiarities.
”If you bring some demands and almost 80% have been attended to, there is no need to drag the strike anymore.
”It is unreasonable for the strike to be lingering seeing as the government has worked towards fulfilling most of the demands.”
