Asuu Strike: Federal Government To Resume Negotiations With Asuu Next Week

This was disclosed by Nigeria’s Labour Minister, Chris Ngige, during a meeting with the striking National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT).

He noted that the FG is hopeful of arriving at a conclusion soon with the union, stating that the academic unions do not take advantage of open-door policies with the FG.

What the minister is saying

He assured that the government was tackling all the disputes in the education sector holistically, knowing full well that none of the unions could function effectively without the others.



He added that he has also met with NASU and SSANU and they were happy, adding that issues that have delayed negotiations with ASUU include money and welfare, old arrears and 2009 renegotiation of conditions of service.

“With an open mind, we will arrive at something. Once we arrive at something, it will be done,” he said.

He, however, noted that the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement would not be immediate because the Education Ministry had put in place a committee to handle it.
