    Default ASUU begins indefinite strike



    The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has condemned in strong terms the failure of the South-Eastern States Governments to meet its demands.

    The President of the union, Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie, who made the condemnation, told the yesterday in Abuja that the ongoing strike in the affected states’ universities would continue indefinitely.

    He said that it was a matter for regret that proper teaching environment and materials were lacking in the universities, "and yet the governors refused to do anything about the situation".

    "Our demand has nothing to do with salary, but the lack of good teaching environment and infrastructure".

    "We declared the industrial action almost three months ago and since then nothing has been done to meet our demands".

    "We have decided to continue the strike indefinitely until they do the right thing or decide they do not need the universities again and close them down", he added.

    Awuzie explained that as a result of the "insensitivity" of the state governments to the plight of the union, some of the lecturers had started leaving for other universities.

    He said: "Some of the universities have already started losing staff, because they have secured employment in other universities".

    "There are many universities in the country, and they are looking for experienced academicians, and you know we are not in large supply".

    "The lecturers cannot just sit endlessly waiting, when there are other job openings for them."

    The Academic Staff Union of Universities [ASUU] has ended its three day warning strike in solidarity with state universities in the South-East.

    But members of the union in state universities in both Lagos and Ogun states say they would continue as their demands have not been met.

    i really do not understand what is happening in this country, should i call it greed, selfishness or ignorance. The back bone of every developed state is sound education, education is one vital segment which the country has to take up. Improper handling of this sector extremely explains the state of the country till date, if only Nigeria can spend at least a quarter of what it spends on luxury on education, the country's state of education would have taken a new phase. I think the best solution to erase this unhealthy condition is to clean-up d house just like Rawlings of Ghana did in his time.

    Default NUC gives S’ East varsities two weeks to resolve industrial crisis


    THE National Universities Commission (NUC) has appealed to the proprietors of the five state-owned universities to resolve their industrial differences to enable the students go back to the classrooms. The commission said it was disturbed that the lingering crisis has defied all attempts at resolving it.

    It said that it would be forced to take all necessary measures against the universities, if after two weeks the students were not recalled into the classrooms, noting that the institutions were lagging behind in serious academic activities.
    In a statement issued yesterday, the Deputy Director (Information and Public Relations) of the commission, Malam Ibrahim Usman Yakasai, said the NUC as the regulatory agency of the government could not fold its arms and watch the academic activities compromised by the prolonged industrial action.

    Although the statement did not spell out the nature of sanctions, The Guardian gathered that the commission was already in dialogue with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) to stop enlisting the institutions in its next round of examination schedules. Besides, the NUC might suspend all its relationships with the affected universities, including embarking on its periodic accreditation visits.

    The statement reads in part: The attention of the National Universities Commission (NUC) has been drawn to the continued closure of all the five public universities owned by state governments in South-East Nigeria due to the persistent industrial action by the staff unions of the institutions.

    NUC, as the sole regulatory agency in charge of quality assurance in Nigerian universities and all degree-awarding institutions, is seriously concerned about the effect such closure will have on the current academic session and ultimately have on the quality of degrees of such institutions.

    Therefore, in order to protect the sanctity and quality of all degrees awarded by Nigerian universities, the management of NUC is hereby appealing to all concerned; the university authorities and the proprietors of the five universities to, as a matter of urgency, enter into a constructive dialogue with a view to reaching an amicable settlement that will result in the reopening of all the institutions for academic activities.

    “NUC cannot fold its arms and watch academic activities compromised by this industrial action. Consequently, the NUC management is hereby giving the proprietors of the five universities in the South-East a two-week ultimatum to resolve issues and ensure the reopening of such institutions for academic activities. Failure to do this will leave the NUC with no option but to apply the necessary sanctions.”

    honestly speaking, the issue of ASUU strike is driving me crazy especially each time i remember i had once been a victim of the so called strike when i was an undergraduate. the govt dont know the implication of the strike cos their own ward are abroad schooling. i pray they realise on time so as not to make futures leaders of our country to dropout.

    I do not understand what is going on in our country.
    Is the strike affecting the Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro not to release their Post Utme/Ume result for 2010/2011?
    Please who knows when they are going to release their result?
    I'm tired of staying and also waiting at home.

    Default Yar'Adua Varsity Declares ASUU Strike Illegal


    — The management of Umaru Musa Yar'adua University in Katsina State at the weekend said the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities is illegal and of no effect.

    Addressing newsmen yesterday, the registrar of the university, Abdu Halliru Abdullahi, said the union was not pursuing its demands through the proper channel.

    He maintained that the Industrial Labour Act states that workers should give their employers adequate notice before embarking on strike, but that the union did not do that.
