No Calling Off ASUU Strike Till Demands Are Met- UNIBEN

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Benin, UNIBEN Chapter has called on the Federal Government to honour the agreement it reached with the union in 2009.

Members of ASUU Chapter, UNIBEN who took their protest to the NUJ Press Centre in Benin City said they were on a sensitization as to the reason why they must continue in their strike to press home their demand.

The Union Members in their various speeches said the Federal Government convinced them with promises of sincerity and determination to fulfil the agreement before they called off their strike in 2009.

They however said there was no going back on the strike until all the demands have been met.

ASUU’s decision to embark on the strike which commenced on July 1st, 2013 was reached at its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU AGO-IWOYE

  1. F.G, you are the manager of our national patrimony. Please demand these from ASUU:- 1. Their members should stop the selling of handouts, they should make video DVDs of their lectures to serve as a supplementary learning aids for their students. 2. Each lecturer should have a blog (with threads) like that of Nairaland for him/her to interact with his/her students with for supplementary and effective communication (online Q&A sessions). 3. Lecturers should stop seeing themselves as demi- gods but as friends and parents to students. That all sadists and bad teachers (poor teaching skills) among them should be given Jonathan’s booth. 4. All exam results must come out within 2 weeks after the completion of all exams so that students can know their results on time and be able to plan better for the next semester. 5. Graduates must get their certificates on their convocation day. 6. That examination should be re-designed to evaluate student’s understanding of the course (application) and not student’s ability to COPY & PASTE crammed definitions. Each lecturer should prepare a synoptic summary of his/ course which should then contain all the definitions and summary of what he/she wants to teach to aid students in the mastery of his/her course. 7. Productivity Allowance should only be paid to lecturers with 70% pass rate i.e 70% of his/her students must pass (C-pass) his/her course on merit based on effective teaching. Greatness lies in simplicity. If a lecturer has not mastered his/her subject to the extent that he/ she is able to effectively teach it, then he/she is not fit to be employed in the system. IF ASUU CAN FULFILL ALL THESE 7-POINT AGENDA, F.G, PLEASE DOUBLE THEIR SALARIES. IF THEY CAN’T , F.G PLEASE REDUCE THEIR SALARIES BY 50% AND LET THE LAW OF DEMAND AND SUPPLY BRING YOU ANOTHER SET OF WORK FORCE . THEY ARE SHORT CHANGING YOU (POOR SERVICE)! STUDENTS DESERVE THE BEST. THE 7-POINT AGENDA IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE AND ASUU DOES NOT NEED BILLIONS TO DO THE ABOVE, THEY ALREADY HAVE THE TOOLS FOR THESE WITHIN THE SYSTEM. IF ASUU WANTS THEIR MEMBERS TO BE PAID LIKE THEIR COUNTERPARTS ABROAD, THEN THEY SHOULD ALSO DEMAND OF THEIR MEMBERS TO WORK LIKE THEIR COUNTERPARTS ABROAD. ASUU, YOU CAN DO BETTER.
