ASUU latest news on resumption
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has revealed that the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-Federal Government agreement which has been a major bone of contention in its dispute with the government is progressing smoothly and has reached an advanced stage.
The lecturers union said that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), which the government has refused to accept, has been tested for the third time by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and would start testing the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Informati on System (IPPIS) by next week.
This disclosure is part of the statement issued by the ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, and can be seen on the union’s website.
Federal Government has given indications that the lingering tussle between it and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is complex.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said this on Wednesday after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said that in spite of the complexities, a lot is being done behind the scene to resolve the issues.
The minister argued that the Federal Government is concerned about the protracted issues with the lecturers and will continue to work to find an early resolution to the problem.
Federal Government has continued its negotiations with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as the strike by the lecturers enters its fourth month.
A meeting between the striking lecturers and the Professor Nimi Briggs Committee, however, ended without a concrete agreement as members planned to reconvene within 24 hours to consider a draft agreement.
Federal Government will today meet with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) while the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and allied institutions would have their meeting on Friday with the FG.
The meetings, Newsonline understands, are geared towards resolving the ongoing strike by the various unions.
Prof. Nimi Briggs-led committee set up the Federal Government to renegotiate the 2009 Agreement signed by the government with the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and put an end to the ongoing industrial action by the union has failed to meet the three-month time frame given it by the FG to conclude its assignment.
The committee, which was inaugurated by the Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, on March 7 this year, was given three months to conclude its assignment.
It was gathered that Adamu gave the committee the go-ahead to continue its negotiation with the union since there seemed to be some progress even though nothing concrete was agreed to within the time limit
Therefore, the committee is expected to continue the negotiation with the union later this week after the public holiday.
the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) is undergoing another round of tests by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).
The President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke gave the update on a Human Right Radio in Abuja yesterday, clarifying several issues surrounding the ongoing strike and why the strike has lingered.
This is the third test being carried out on the UTAS accounting software by the government agency.
Osodeke said UTAS passed over 90 per cent in the first and second tests carried out on it, but that NITDA concluded that the payment platform failed some tests.
ASUU Chairman at the University of Ibadan, Professor Ayoola Akinwole, who stated this in his June 12 statement said the high price of the presidential forms of the two major political parties is a strategy adopted by politicians to ensure looting continues in the country.
Professor Ayoola said no Nigerian professor can be able to purchase the presidential form of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, or the opposition Peoples Democratic party, PDP, without saving for 40 years to 100 years.
Professor Ayoola said it was time Nigerians and youth took over the affairs of the country from the corrupt politicians who have no plan for the country.
ASUU has disassociated itself from an Intervention Fund while rejecting an N50m donation.
Newsonline reports that the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has rejected the sum of N50 million that was donated as part of an intervention fund.
Ahmed Isah popularly called the “ordinary President ” of the berekete family radio station invited the union’s president, prof. Emmanuel Osodeke and his team on Saturday, June 11, to the radio program where the intervention fund idea was formally presented.
In his effort to make the union buy into the intervention fund idea, he disclosed that the Akwa Ibom state governor, Udom Emmanuel has donated N50 million to the course.
After presenting the money, ASUU’s president who wasn’t pleased with the development said the union shouldn’t be associated with such.
Angered by the union’s response, Ahmed fired back at ASUU and threatened to stop the intervention. Listeners who called in during the show described ASUU’s response as rude and insensitive.
This comes after the radio host had on June 1st, called on well-meaning Nigerians and presidential aspirants in the forthcoming general elections to contribute the same amount they had used in purchasing their nomination forms in view of settling ASUU’s demands and ending the strike.
Ahmed had also revealed that he has contributed N10 million of his personal money to the course.
