NLC Tells Senate Why ASUU Can’t Call-Off The Strike Now

1 min

President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Ayuba Wabba, said on Tuesday that there is no possibility that the Academic Staff Union of Universities will put an end to their ongoing strike now.

He said this when he appeared before Senate Committee on Aviation to report the position of the union on the six bills deliberated by the house to bring a new development to the union.

He stated that as long as the matter is still unconsidered or unchecked, there is nothing that will pronounce the strike called-off

When asked what NLC could do to advise ASUU to call-off strike as the negotiation is still in progress, he answered “that is not how negotiations are done. If before the action commences, we were able to reach a negotiation, then we would have resolved the issues.

“We are already on the action before those issues arose. I don’t think that is the best way to go. Government should show enough commitment to resolve the issue once and for all”.

He also spoke about the fuel hike that it was as a result of the inability of FG to make provisions for what was requested.

“What we said in our agreement is that all the palliatives must be implemented with time line and that has not been done.

“We have since communicated to government and our next line of action would also be communicated to Nigerians.”

Moreover, he urged the house to also considerably attend to some specific areas that need adequate attention.

He also kicked against the bill that made provision for interim board members in the management structure of the Aviation sector.

He added that the bills only addressed unnecessary recommendations leaving behind the issues of industrial relations, professionalism, and workers core interest.

However, the Senator Smart Adeyemi-led committee promised to consider everything stated by the NLC and pass them into bills as soon as possible.
