Education Minister Has Not Communicated with Us - ASUU


Academic operations in public universities across the nation have been suspended as a result of the National Executive Council of the Academic Staff of Union of Universities' failure to halt the ongoing strike action.

The NEC would meet on August 1, 2022, as The PUNCH had been the first to report.

The conference, which ended early on Monday morning (August 1, 2022), attempted to assess the activities and progress documented thus far, according to sources within the NEC, who verified this to our correspondent.

In addition, our correspondent discovered that despite assurances to the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), that the strike would be ended, the union had not heard from the minister of education, Adamu Adamu.

"To be completely honest, there was no progress achieved when we examined the previous steps. The minister has not at all gotten in touch with us. No one has contacted us. According to a source within the NEC who wished to remain unnamed, "I can affirm that calling off the strike is not even up for consideration." This source told our correspondent on Monday morning.

However, Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, was working around the clock to guarantee that the strike was called off, according to Ben Goong, the ministry's spokeswoman.

"We are unable to discuss our plans before submitting them to the president. To guarantee that he carries out the president's order, the minister is working nonstop. We will call ASUU when we are ready to," Goong added.

At the time this article was filed, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the national president of ASUU, could not be reached for any comment.

The union strike, according to The PUNCH, enters day 167 today (Monday).

ASUU has promised not to call off its strike as long as all of its demands are not satisfied.
