Whether the four and a half months old strike by individuals from the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, would be called off soon now lays on the reaction of the Central Government to the requests of the union made through a board of trustees set up the public authority to haggle with it.
Checks by Vanguard on Monday showed that the public administration of ASUU has made its show to the Prof. Nimi Briggs-drove board of trustees set up to reevaluate the 2009 arrangement endorsed by the different sides.
Talking in a phone visit with our reporter, the Public Leader of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said his union had put forth a valiant effort in the situation.
“We have made our show to the panel and there is something else to add,” he said.
On when the input is normal from the public authority’s side, he said, “They vowed to hit us up inside a brief time frame.”
However he expressed nothing about what the union’s show contained, it was assembled that union could give the public authority additional opportunity to satisfy a few needs that have monetary ramifications.
When reached, Prof. Briggs said his board of trustees had met with ASUU and had taken care of its task.
“We have met and ASUU have made their show. Certain individuals sent me on a task and I need to answer to them. The panel isn’t the last expert on this. We are not the ones to figure out what will be finished,” he expressed.
Recall that ASUU went on a four-week cautioning strike on February 14 this year and has expanded the strike two times.
To start with, by about two months and also by 12 weeks.
Among the issues in dispute are staff government assistance, installment of Procured Academic Allowance, installment of Revitalisation Asset of N200 billion yearly for something like six years to give offices in the universities, stoppage of the Coordinated Faculty Finance Data Framework, IPPIS, as the installment stage in the college framework among others.
Be that as it may, government is faulting lack of assets for its powerlessness to satisfy a portion of the needs, while the union is blaming the public authority for not getting its needs correct.
