ASUU arises a 3-week request to FG to meet their demands

Members of the ASUU University Academic Staff Union gave the federal government a three-week ultimatum to respond to their urgent demands or face another strike.

The Association of Senior University Officials and the Association of Non-Academic University Officials met today to discuss the next steps in the federal government’s failure to meet union demands.

Recall that last year the federal government signed a letter of intent with the unions in which it sought to comply with the established requirements, inter alia, with the payment of work benefits, the introduction of the UTAS platform for university employees, and Payment of the university revitalization fund was sufficient.

The national president of trade unions, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, today, November 15, complained at the University of Abuja about the government’s failure to address the trade union problem.

“We are giving the federal government a three-week ultimatum, and if they fail to meet our demands within three weeks, we will go on strike. We believe we did enough to give them enough time,” said Osodeke

However, Osodeke added that We remind you that in December 2020 the union ended its nine-month strike the federal government has not responded to this threat.
