In order to control how children of public officials enroll in schools outside of Nigeria, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has asked for legislation.

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) organized a solidarity rally on Tuesday in Yenagoa, and Kingdom Tombra, the union’s chairman at the University of Niger Delta University’s Wilberforce Island branch, said as much.

In response to the ongoing statewide strike in Nigeria’s public universities, the NLC, in solidarity with the ASUU and other member unions, organized a rally that was held across the country.

“If this is done, it will build a better society by developing formidable educational institutions and improve funding of the university system in Nigeria. 

“This struggle is not against the government, but about the working class and against the ruling class and we are very committed to it

“If the rich and poor go to the same university or institution, I don’t think the strike will occur again.

“If they school here and their children are here they will show total support for the university system and the tertiary institutions in Nigeria,”  he said.

On February 14, lecturers at government-run universities started a statewide strike in protest of the introduction of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as the industry’s payment system.

John Ndiomu, the chairman of the NLC in Bayelsa, asked the federal government to sign the revised text of the agreement between it and ASUU earlier.

“Adopt University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) in place IPPIS, Pay Earned Academic Allowances (EAA)

“Release of Revitalization Fund, Release white paper on visitation to Federal Universities. Amend NUC law to control the proliferation of state universities without funding,” the union leader said.
