No agreement yet on ASUU strike – Prof Ogunyemi

Nigerian ASUU president, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, who responded to claims that the ASUU strike might be on hold soon, stated that no agreement has been touched with the federal government.

Biodun Ogunyemi revealed that the team that represented the union at the meeting with representatives of government had no final say over calling off the ASUU strike action as time soon.

“It was just yesterday (Tuesday) that government sent the proposal to us without waiting for feedback before going to the public that we have reached an agreement. ASUU does not operate in that manner.

“The ASUU team that met the Federal Government would have to consult our principal over the proposal which we are already doing.

“So, ASUU cannot make a pronouncement on a mere proposal. Until our principal agrees, there is no agreement. And that is what we have always emphasized to government that we are going to consult our members and if after consultation, our members think the proposal is good enough, we will get back to government and tell them that now, we have taken a decision which becomes an agreement.

“But so far on government proposal, we have not taken a decision. And our strike is still ongoing.

“If you say you are going to set up a committee and you have set up that committee, that one is clear. And if you say you are going to pay certain money for certain purpose and you have paid, that will not also cause further argument. But where we said you should release certain amount of money in five tranches within certain period of time, and you are saying well, you have paid N20 billion, or you have paid N2 billion or N15. 4 billion, it means you haven’t started.

“So, that is the level we are now. And we don’t have a final say on any proposal that is controversial. But for areas that are not controversial as I had mentioned, we will only need to confirm payment. If paid, fine. It then means that one is settled and we now move to another one that is yet to be settled. And the one that is not settled we will need to take feedback to our members and that is the position we are at the moment” he said.

We shall be bringing you more updates as time goes…
