ASUU Reject FG's Proposal To End Strike
Again, the hope that the Federal Government intends to use Monday’s meeting to compel the reopening of universities, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said that any proposal not based on a clear acceptance of a frame-work for implementing the 2009 agreement would not be acceptable.
The union further warned against the
threat of forceful reopening of universities, stating that it would be the height of dictatorship and would deepen the present crisis in the education sector rather than end the union’s ongoing industrial action.
Chairman of Bauchi Branch and member of ASUU National Working Committee, Dr. Lawan Abubakar, declared Sunday: “It is our hope that the meeting of ASUU leaders with the President scheduled for Monday (today) will be a dialogue leading to a mutually acceptable, fair and far-reaching solution based on the implementation of the FGN-ASUU 2009 agreement.”
So. at the end of the meeting nothing concrete was achieved, and it means that our youths should continue to walk aimlessly on our street.
