ASUU Will Suspend strike Soon – Minister of Labour, Ngige


Dr Chris Ngige, Minister of Labor and Employment, Tuesday night said that the services of Finance, Education, Labor and Employment and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation would meet with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to determine issues influencing the education sector.

Unveiling this when he showed up on Channels Television, the ex Anambra state governor said that ASUU would suspend strike soon.

His words: “The issue of ASUU will soon come to an end. Two reasons – ASUU have called the Federal Government, represented by Finance and the Accountant-General Office and their direct employers, the Ministry of Education to come for the test.

“We are ready to do that. After the Independence Day celebration, the four ministries and agencies involved will gather together with ASUU. We will look at the UTAS. If there are shortcomings with IPPIS as complained which UTAS have corrected. What’s wrong about it? It is software, we will look at it.

“Secondly, ASUU members have been collecting their money since COVID-19 came and I wrote a memo to Mr President that ASUU members are still Nigerians. Even the members, have families that they care for. By upper week, we are going to arrange for this demonstration.”
