FUOYE VC Urges FG To Dialogue With ASUU To Avert Strike;
The Vice-chancellor, Prof. Abayomi Fasina of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), has advised the Federal Government to dialogue with members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to avert the impending strike.
FUOYE VC gave the advice on Wednesday in Oye-Ekiti, while speaking with newsmen at the third matriculation ceremony of the School of Postgraduate Studies of the institution.
The vice-chancellor said the strike was not the best for the Nigerian universities, adding that many foreign universities were experiencing free and smooth learning without any distraction.
It could be recalled that ASUU had earlier threatened to go on strike if the Federal Government fails to honour the agreement reached with the union.
Earlier, The federal government says audit at the CBN is delaying payment to ASUU.
Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has also appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) not to embark on a fresh strike, eight months after the union suspended a nine-month-long strike action that paralysed the nation’s universities and disrupted academic calendars.
Nwajiuba says the reason why ASUU hasn’t received monies as promised in 2020 before the last strike was called off, is because bureaucracy at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is delaying the disbursement.
