The Federal Government asserts that it has done all possible to put a stop to the current industrial action being taken by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Adamu Adamu, the Minister of Education, said this on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, during a meeting with the Provosts and Vice-Chancellors of Federal Universities at the National Universities Commission (NUC) Abuja. He claimed that all previous attempts by the government to get the lecturers back in the classroom had failed.
He emphasized that several government officials, including himself, had spoken with the union on numerous occasions to put an end to the seven-month strike.
“We have done the best that we can in the circumstance. After inter-ministerial consultations and rounds of hard negotiations with all government agencies, we interacted with the Unions. I personally, gave it all it required to resolve the current challenges.
“I met the Unions anywhere and everywhere possible with facts, with figures, and with absolute sincerity.
“For example, I directly met with ASUU leadership in my house, in my office, and at the ASUU Secretariat on several different occasions, in addition to other formal engagements going on,” he said.
Buhari orders government agents to stand their position in the face of ASUU The Minister continued by saying that President Muhammadu Buhari has instructed them to refuse any unreasonable demands.
Beginning on February 14, 2022, ASUU closed down public institutions in protest of the union’s demand that all prior agreements it and the FG had made be fully implemented.
