FG Will Look Into ASUU’s Strike Threat- Ngige


Following the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU’s threat of embarking on an indefinite strike, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has reportedly assured the union that the Federal Government would look into the threat by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

 Disclosing this in Abuja on Wednesday, He stated, “The truth is that ASUU’s grievances are with the NUC, the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy. The issues are the deployment of their UTAS and the White Paper report on the universities.’

The Minister noted, “You know that we at the Ministry of Labour are not their employer; the Education ministry is their employer. Our job here is to act as reconciliatory officers.”

He added, “The President has mandated his Chief of Staff and the Minister of Education as well as the Ministry of Labour to step in, but my job is to step in as the reconciliatory officer if both sides refuse to settle their grievances. We will surely look into the matter.”
