The industrial action by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, will continue as members of the National Executive Council, NEC, of the union did not consider the option of suspending the action at its meeting which ended in the early hours of Monday in Abuja.



The checks by Vanguard showed that the national leadership of the union only briefed the meeting on their interactions and submissions made to the Prof. Nimi Briggs Committee, which was set up by the Federal Government to renegotiate the 2009 Agreement with the union.

A source said the leadership also told the meeting about the intervention of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, in the matter and the subsequent nationwide solidarity rallies held by the Congress and its affiliates last week.

“Since there was no sign of any serious commitment on the part of the government, there was no need for the NEC to consider suspending the strike." Can anybody say this is what the government is offering? They were the ones who set up the Briggs Committee, and it made recommendations, but the government jettisoned the report.
“The government is not sincere." Let us assume that we are asking too much, which is not even the situation. Is it not that the government will come out with its offers and we will deliberate whether to accept them or not? We have been saying that they want to kill the university system just as they did public primary and secondary schools.
“How many Nigerians are now proud to send their children to public primary and secondary schools that we all attended in those days?" The national leadership of the union will soon come out with our decisions,” the source said.

Last Tuesday and Wednesday, solidarity rallies were held across the states and in Abuja to press the government to accede to the requests of the union and for the immediate reopening of the universities.
