Abuja Zonal Coordinator of the union, Prof. Theophilus Lagi recently listed the demands to include more funding for public universities and renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement at a recent press conference in Gwagwalada
According to him, the uni teachers are not in support of “the planned forceful imposition of IPPIS on universities” and the FG being unable to pay February 2020 salaries.
He added that ASUU also wants FG to declare a five-year State of Emergency in the education sector during which at least 20 percent of the budget and the same percentage of states’ budgets should be allocated to education.
His words, “These issues have been agreed upon by the federal government and ASUU via several memoranda which aggregated the cardinal arguments of the previous 2013 (MoU), 2017 (MoA), and the Feb. 7, 2019 MoA.
“Unfortunately, these noble initiatives proposed by our union and accepted by the federal government for the upliftment of Nigeria education have remained contentious because they have not been addressed
“ASUU also wants the federal government to declare a five-year State of Emergency in the education sector during which at least 20 per cent of the budget and same percentage of states’ budgets should be allocated to education.”
“The derailment by government from the principles of those interventions has led to the current deficiency and decay we see on our campuses.
“This is compounded by the unnecessary meddlesomeness in the internal administrative procedures and processes of our universities by the government and its agents.
“We want the nation to understand that our opposition to the implementation of IPPIS in our universities is a patriotic action because the scheme is a bastion of fraud that permits the enrolment of ghost workers.
“We, in the Abuja Zone, have resolved to prosecute this strike to its logical conclusion and what we are doing is to salvage the already decayed university system and the future of our children.”
