ASUU: We Are Ready To Resume
We are ready to resume, says ASUU
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on
Thursday, gave an indication that the union will suspend its
prolonged strike very soon, as its President, Prof Biodun
Ogunyemi, declared that the varsity lecturers are ready to go
back to school.
The ASUU President gave the hint even as the Federal
Government, through the Minister of Labour and
Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, assured it would meet the
union demands within time frame it stipulated.
Prof Ogunyemi, who was speaking at a meeting between the
Federal Government, led by the Labour Minister and ASUU
leadership, led by the President, said their members are
willing to resume because it is a matter of national interest.
He points out that their members also have their children at
home, like all other parents who have their children at home
due to the prolonged strike.
The ASUU president said: “Our members are ready and
willing to go to class because it is a matter of national
interest. Just like every other person’s child is at home, our
member’s children are also at home.”
Prof Ogunyemi commended the Senate President and the
Minister of Labour and Employment, the Accountant
General of the Federation, among others for making it
possible for them to discuss on the issues.
He pointed out that though, ASUU delegation came with an
open mind to the meeting, its members out there expect
much from the meeting.
