Update On ASUU Strike As Lecturers Await Buhari's Order On No-Work No-Pay

Posted by Thandiubani on Wed 12th Oct, 2022 - tori.ng

Meanwhile, branches of ASUU will begin consultations on Wednesday (today) over the possibility of calling off the strike.

 
 
The Academic Staff Union of Universities has said it is yet to call off its ongoing strike because it is still awaiting the decision of the President Muhammadu Buhari on the no-work-no-pay rule.
 
According to Punch, the President’s decision on the matter is key to a decision the union will take on whether to call off the strike or continue.
 
It was further learnt that only the President can grant the waiver for the arrears of the striking lecturers to be paid.

 “The issue of the no-work-no-pay has not been resolved yet. We are still waiting for Mr President,” a source, who does not want his name in print because he was not authorised to speak on the matter, told The PUNCH.
 
Also speaking to Punch, another source said, “It is only the President who can give that waiver at the moment. He has to forgive them. He is very hurt that they caused a delay for students.”
 
Meanwhile, branches of ASUU will begin consultations on Wednesday (today) over the possibility of calling off the strike.
 
Our correspondent also gathered that the union’s National Executive Council will meet on the matter on Thursday.
 
Confirming the development, the National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, noted that the union would meet.
 
He, however, did not disclose the date and the place where the meeting would take place.
 
“Yes, we will meet and take our decision,” Osodeke simply said.
 
ASUU had on Monday, February 14, 2022, embarked on a strike over what the union described as the failure of the government to meet its demands.
 
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, after what he described as “failed negotiations” dragged the striking lecturers before the National Industrial Court.
 
The court, on September 21, ordered ASUU to call off the strike.
 
The Court of Appeal also handed down a similar order last week.
