Planned Strike: ASUU Sets To Meet Next Week, Over FG’s Inaction

The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Sunday said its National Executive Council would meet next week to weigh its options on whether to embark on strike or not following the failure of the Federal Government to meet some of its demands.

The union’s National President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja.

Recall that ASUU had issued ultimatum to the Federal Government and accused the government of deliberately ignoring its demands.

Some of ASUU’s demands include the payment of salary arrears of its members, payment of revitalisation funds of universities and the development of a new payment platform known as the UTAS platform.

The Federal Government had, however, insisted that it was working hard on making sure that the association’s demands were met.

But Osodeke said, “For now, there is nothing new from their (government’s) side. They have deliberately continued to do this in a bid to make us bad.

“We have given them enough time and we are sure the public has heard our cries. The NEC will be meeting next week. No particular day yet but it is next week.

“We are hoping they do something before next week. When we meet, we will weigh our options and decision will be taken.

4.92 CGPA
Best Graduating Student Civil Engineering

I was still recovering from the loss of my mum when I lost my dad my first semester in CU. It was tough for me because of how close we were. I also didn’t know how my life would be after that. My family members were worried I wouldn’t be able to cope.

Through the family drama, depression and the silent tears at night, God told me specifically in 100 level He would see me through. He said I had a Father in Him and I’d never be alone.

Year after year, God kept making things easy for me and gave me more for all I had lost. In Him I found true joy and peace.

This is more than an achievement for me but a reminder of Gods faithfulness to me and His intentionality towards me. Even before I prayed, God always made provision. God is good to me.

Despite all I went through, God strengthened me and made me mentally stable. I worked really hard and I’m so proud of myself!

This one is for you mummy and daddy �❤️
Your girl did it. God did it for me.
Trust God. Trust the process.

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:10‬ ‬‬✨

By Najib Sani, Bauchi

Our correspondent reports that of the 1, 101 posted to the state under the batch, 658 are males while 443 are female graduates from different institutions in the country.

Speaking while swearing in the newly deployed NYSC members Tuesday at the Yobe state NYSC orientation camp, the Director General of the scheme Brigadier General Ibrahim Shuaibu represented by the state coordinator Mrs Hafsat Yerima explained that the members were deliberately posted away from their states of origin in addition to assembling them there from diverse ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds.

The deployment policies according to him are aimed at broadening the youth’s understanding of the country, thereby standing them in good stead for effective contribution to the promotion of national unity and integration.

“I therefore, encourage you to ensure healthy interactions, exchange ideas and build lasting friendships with a view to advancing the progress of a united Nigeria.

“My dear compatriots, today, you have taken the solemn oath to dedicate yourselves to the service of our fatherland. I enjoin you to always ponder over the significance of the oath and be guided by its spirit and letters. In the same vein, I advise you to familiarize yourselves with the content of both the NYSC Act and the NYSC Bye-Laws”. He charged them.

The NYSC boss however cautioned the youth against indulgence in cultism, drug abuse and other social vices through out their service year urging them to also use the social media only for the promotion of unity and other positive purposes rather than rumour peddling and the promotion of hatred.

Also speaking, the state governor Mai Mala Buni represented by the commissioner of youth and sports Goni Bukar Lawan asserted that the NYSC scheme has over time proven to be a major unifier amongst youths in the country’s quest to break down the walls of ethnicity, religious bigotry, and primordial sentiments.

“This it has continued to be achieved by re-orientating and redirecting their minds towards national goals and aspirations.

“The resolve of the government to expand the Multi-Purpose hall for lectures and other engagements in the camp is a frontal commitment of His Excellency at ensuring that the enabling atmosphere is created for training”. He stated.
