727

The Academic Staff Union of Universities has declared a two-week warning strike against non-payment of salaries of lecturers not enrolled in the Federal Government’s Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System.

The National President of the union, Biodun Ogunyemi, declared this after the ASUU National Executive Council meeting held in Enugu adding that the warning strike takes immediate effect.

Ogunyemi said the strike action was to drive the Federal Government to implement the agreement and resolution of Memorandum of Action it had with the union from 2009, 2013, 2017, and 2019.

“Having discussed the provisions in the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement, the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding and the 2017 Memorandum of Action which have not been implemented, NEC resolved to embark on two weeks warning strike action with effect from Monday 9th March 2020, to compel the Government to implement the agreement and resolution,” Ogunyemi stated.

    I criticized FG for this strike till i got full details behind the IPPS SYSTEM. Truth be said ASUU may have to reconsider their stand on this strike. Well, I feel they should immediately after this Covid 19. Students have long stayed at home and this energies the carry maybe turned into another thing.With this in view ASUU should start discussion on how to lift this strike. My mind tho.
