In response to the dispute between the federal government and the Academic Union of Universities, ASUU, FG announced on Tuesday that it would give a certificate of registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics, a different group of academic unions.
This information was made public in an invitation sent to journalists on Tuesday by Oshundun Olajide, the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment's Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations.
According to the invitation, the presentation will be made by Chris Ngige, Minister of Labour and Employment, at 2 pm in the Hon. Minister's Conference Room of the Federal Secretariat in Phase 1 of Abuja.
Remember that ASUU has been on strike for roughly seven months at this point. The funding for the Revitalization of Public Universities, Earned Academic Allowances, University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), and promotion arrears are some of the demands made by the lecturers.
Others include the 2009 ASUU-FG Agreement's renegotiation and the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System's inconsistency.
After a series of disagreements with the academic union, FG today stated: “The Honorable Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, cordially invites you to the recognition and presentation of a Certificate of Registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics."
