 President Goodluck
Jonathan on Sunday in Abuja, advocated a review of labour laws to curtail the
excesses of the Academic Staff Union of

Universities (ASUU) and other labour
unions.

The President, who made the call during a Presidential media
chat in Abuja, urged the striking

members of ASUU to return to work in the
interest of their students and the education sector.

The President also said it was inconceivable that lecturers
in state-owned universities would go on strike over issues concerning the
allowances of lecturers in federal universities.
He said such a situation would not occur if well-guided and
well-thought out laws were in place regulating labour union activities.
Jonathan also said that the N79 billion Earned Allowance
arrears, which was the major reason for the ASUU strike, was not supposed to be
paid from the federation account.
According to the President, earned allowances ought to be
paid from the Internally Generated Revenue of the universities, if a good
labour law is in place.
Jonathan called on the striking ASUU to reconsider its stand
by accepting government offer, and call its members back to the classrooms.
The President reiterated the commitment of his
administration to adequately fund the universities and provide the necessary
infrastructure to aid the education sector
Jonathan said that the PDP-led administration had done quite
well, despite all the odds and challenges
According to him, Nigeria is better off in the past years of
the PDP-led government with improved standard of living, building of more
federal universities, improved telecommunication, railways and roads.
The President assured that with the commitment of his
administration to the privatisation of the power sector, electricity supply
would become stable by the end of the first quarter of 2014. (NAN)
