He said the government must do the needful to address the contending issues as agreed in the interest of the good people of Nigeria.

“Looming strike is inevitable as long as government fails to implement the impending agreement reached with the union,” Professor Nasir said.

The Chairman explained that issues contained in the MOU dated February 7, 2019, include addressing matters of revitalization funds for public universities satisfactorily, arrears of earned academic allowances, the constitution of visitation panels to universities, proliferation of state universities, and issues of governance in them and the conclusion of the renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement.

He however enumerated areas of concern to the union, to include “imposition of IPPIS, and its implications to the Nigerian university system, Development of University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), government’s lip service to education and renegotiation of 2009 ASUU/FGN agreement.

“The Union has listened to well-meaning Nigerians in suspending its last strike action to enable the federal government to address issues in contentions with ASUU in order to save the Nigerian university system.

“However, the government has continued to make promises laden with deceit in resolving many of the issues related to lingering impasse between FGN and ASUU.”
