Strike: ASUU demands will be looked into within six weeks, says FG
Our panel will use 6 weeks to look into the demands placed by ASUU,” says Labour Minister.
Clearly, ASUU will be on strike throughout the month of March until late April.
The minister said within six weeks, the committee set up at the education ministry will wrap up everything and send its recommendations.
He said: “A new team has been set up because they needed to have a second look at the Professor Munzali’s committee’s report which concluded the renegotiation agreement, and make sure, with ASUU’s
contribution, that some of the allowances are not against the national salaries and wages commissions’s fixed salaries and allowances.
“If that is not done and we simply propose it to the government, it will not be accepted. So, it is important that they work well. So that whatever they present can be approved by the federal executive council.”
He also noted that the team comprising representatives of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and ASUU technical team has until March 8 to report the final resolutions onUTASe deployment.
“So NITDA’s team and some external IT experts will meet with ASUU to address the grey areas. Their recommendations will determine the next step,” Mr Ngige said.
