ASUU Strike 2013: FG Meets ASUU Today, To Force Varsities Open

PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan will meet the leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU on Monday (today), apparently with a view to resolve the Federal Government-ASUU face-off that has left varsity gates shut since July 1.

But the union said it had got wind of Presidency’s plan to direct that Universities be reopened, saying such directive without amicable resolution of the current strike would deepen the crisis.

Chairperson of the UNIPORT chapter of ASUU, Professor Anthonia Okerengwo, urged the Federal Government to toe the path of honour in its effort towards resolving the lingering strike.

His University of Benin, UNIBEN counterpart, Dr Anthony Money-Emina, described as laughable, reports that President Goodluck Jonathan will order the union members to go back to work today.

    Why force?
    The federal Government should,for no reason think of using those measure(forcefull)in the reopening of universities on strike.
    As a nigerian student,l am directly affected but force is never the answer to this shamful question possed by the education sector in our nation.
    I pray that our government will learn and adhere to the rules of agreement this time
