Strike: Obey court resumption order, Group, parents tell ASUU

Noble Youths Mass Support Association (NYMSA), an FCT youth group, has called on the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to reverse the resumption order given by the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) in Abuja on Wednesday. to obey

Mr. Godwin Onmonya, the National Coordinator of the group, made the call while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gwagwalada, FCT.

He said the strike had a negative impact on students.

The trade union, through its president, mr. Emmanuel Osodeke, has embarked on a nationwide warning strike since February 14 to press his demands, stressing that the action will continue until their demands are met.

Some of the lecturers’ demands were funding of the Revival of Public Universities, Merit Academic Grants, University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) and overdue promotion.

Others are the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-FG agreement and alleged inconsistency in Integrated Staff Payroll Information System.

The strike, which entered its seventh month, forced the federal government to file a case in court to stop the strike and allow students to resume.

However, students through the National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) started protests by blocking access to the Lagos International Airport and threatened to block other major roads if the government did not meet the demands.

The court granted the resumption order, pending the decision of the substantive suit, at the instance of the Minister of Labor and Employment, in terms of his powers on Labor Laws of the Federation.

Similarly, Mr Luka Ayuba, a parent in Gwagwalada Area Council, whose child studied veterinary medicine at the University of Abuja, said the strike made his son focus on other things.

“After each episode of strike, the children are no longer focused and do not finish within the set years.

“My only pain is that the people in government don’t feel it because their own children are not in public schools, but abroad or in private schools,” he said.

Meanwhile, ASUU Zonal Coordinator, Abuja, Dr Salawu Lawal, earlier said there would be no resumption in public universities until the renegotiated 2009 agreement was signed, implemented and the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) rolled out. (NAN)
