ASUU National President, Comrade Victor Osedeke
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has called on the Federal government to attend to the outstanding issues in the Memorandum of Action (MOA) of December 23,2020 and issues related to the draft renegotiated agreement of May 2021 by August ending.
National President of the union, Comrade Victor Osedeke, stated this at a press conference in Ilorin at the end of the National Executive Council meeting held at the University of Ilorin.
He urged Nigerians to put pressure on the Federal government to sign the agreement to forestall any imminent strike action by the union.
Comrade Osedeke appealed to ASUU both the Federal and state government to give the issues the urgent attention they deserve to sustain and improve on the current industrial peace on the university campuses.
He condemned the neglect of the state-owned universities by the state governors whose responsibility it is to fund, staff, equip and make the universities nationally and globally competitive.
Comrade Osedeke warned that unless urgent and necessary steps are taken, the state-owned universities may soon collapse beyond redemption.
