ASUU strike: FG may make U-turn on no-work, no-pay directives

THE Federal Government may reverse its decision not to pay the striking university lecturers who have been at home for the past seven months.

The government may also review some of its difficult decisions which have been opposed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, causing the latter to continue its strike despite pleas by students, parents and concerned Nigerians.

At a meeting with pro-chancellors and vice-chancellors of universities on Tuesday, the government constituted a 14-member committee to, among other things, review its decision not to pay the striking lecturers for the period they were at home and other contentious issues.

The Director of Press and Public Relations of the Federal Ministry of Education, Mr Bem Goong, who briefed newsmen on the decisions taken during the meeting, said the committee would also look into other contentious areas of the renegotiation with ASUU.

However, Goong said that the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, as the payment platform for university lecturers, was not discussed at the meeting, adding that it was also not part of the issues the 14-member committee would tackle.

Mr Goong, who did not disclose the length of time given to the committee to carry out its task, said the report of the committee would soon be presented to President Muhammadu Buhari for consideration.
