TUC wants FG to end ASUU strike


The Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Friday called on the Federal
Government to take measures to end the four-month-old strike by Academic
Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

This call is contained in a statement signed by the Secretary General of the union, Mr. Musa Lawal, in Abuja.

ASUU had embarked on strike to protest against the non-implementation
of 2009 agreement reached between the
union and the Federal Government.

The TUC said the union was disturbed that in spite of protests and
appeals by parents, students, market women and others, government had
not shown concerned about plight of the students.

“TUC is again appealing to government to address this critical issue that bothers on our collective future as a nation.

“It is high time our governments at all levels embrace the culture of respecting and adhering to agreements.

“There is no gainsaying the fact that ASUU’s strike has been allowed
to drag on for too long, and the consequences are incalculable.

“We insist that it now behooves on government to move and decisively
address the issues at stake,’’ the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the
union as saying in the statement.

According to the statement, any nation that abandons its youth
developmental and educational system inadvertently abandons its

“We shall not fold our arms and allow the nation’s educational system to collapse.’’

It said the situation was worrisome, noting that Nigeria, arguably
the richest country in Africa and sixth largest producer of crude oil in
the world, seemingly could not guarantee education for its citizenry.
