NLC Cautions FG Over ASUU Strike

AS the ongoing nationwide strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, enters the third day, Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, has warned of the impact of the strike on students and the educational sector in the country.
It called on government to not only end the strike immediately by implementing the agreements it entered into with ASUU, but also declare a state of emergency in education.
NLC said in a statement, yesterday, that while the strike was completely avoidable, but made inevitable by Federal government’s insensitivity and penchant for reneging on agreements, Congress found it completely unacceptable that government refused to implement agreements it willingly entered into.
The statement by NLC President, Abdulwaheed Omar, argued that the issues articulated by ASUU were not self-serving but tenable, valid and germane to the sustenance of a qualitatively viable education system.
According to the statement “in a nutshell, these issues include, the lingering crisis at the Rivers State University of Technology, RSUST; the continued violation of the rights of the re-engaged 49 academics at the University of Ilorin; the non-release of the White Paper on Special Visitation to the University of Abuja; the parlous state of the economy and government’s disregard for its agreements.”
