ASUU Strike Update Day 71: ASUU Vows To Continue Strike Until FG Pays

Speaking during a telephone
interview with newsmen on Sunday,
National President, Professor Biodun
Ogunyemi said that ASUU has shifted
ground from N1.1 trillion to N220
billion which he said will cover for
three quarters in 2019
He stated that the union was ready to
call off the strike if the federal
government paid the N220 billion.
When asked if the union was ready
to shift grounds from the N220
billion, he maintained: “We have
already shifted ground. “We
presented five tranches payment to
the federal government. If we made
request for five tranches of N1.1
trillion and they are not ready to give
one, that shows they are the ones
not ready to shift grounds.
On the impact of the strike on the
February general elections, the
president says that ASUU strike has
nothing to do with the February
elections; adding that the issue with
the FG has been on since 2006 and
the position of the union has nothing
to do with the elections.
“If they know they are banking on
students to use for election, then let
them do what they ought to do. If
they do what we asked them to do,
our member can take decision this
week and the matter would be
resolved.” He said.
Regarding some universities who are
trying to boycott the
strike, Ogunyemi said: “We know
that there are some moves by
government agents at federal and
state levels to break our ranks. But
our members are getting back to us
and to a large extent now, our
members are resolute. “Yes, there are
some overzealous chancellors and
administrators in one or two
universities who are trying to brake
these ranks. However, on the scale of
balance, they are not having their
ways. On the way of handling the
default institutions, he said, “Our
union shall handle that.”
