President Goodluck Jonathan - November 2013 - BellaNaija

It seems students of Federal Government institutions will be heading back to school soon.

The Federal Government has given the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) one week ultimatum to call off the ongoing strike.

It began on Monday 1st July 2013 over the non implementation of a 2009 agreement with the FG.

The acting Minister of Education Nyesom Wike gave the directive today Thursday 28th November 2013 in Abuja, while speaking with media representatives.

    And the sad thing is, ASUU will call off the strike without the govt keeping their end of the agreement.

    ASUU has lost public sympathy,they’re not keeping their own end of the deal they made with the FG.

    Just sad that this government tactics of blackmailing people demanding for their right seems to work always. Why should ASUU lose public sympathy? is it Ok to pay militants and tell lecturers there’s not enough money when militants are being given scholarships to study within and outside Nigeria and getting paid salaries. A government has refused to honour agreements and everyone is blaming the folks trying to hold them accountable. our people are really our problem.

      That you are a lecturer doesn’t guarantee your authority
      against procedures…don’t hold people accountable by making them
      look stupid. ASUU is messing up with understanding!

    Why will AsUU refuse time and time again to resolve this
    issue? It almost seem like they are not even ready to go back to
    their jobs and move the educational system forward. Whether we have
    crooks at the helm of affairs or not(matter for another day) the
    truth remains that ASUU isn’t acting like a resolution of
    differences and putting the educational system ist is their
    priority.they too have failed to prove that the strike is them
    fighting for good of education otherwise why will they twist and
    turn out of decisions reached? Methinks this is a welcome
    development by the Federal Govt,who like make e nor
    resume,according to the press release I read,another will be
    employed in your place,shikena.

    This is like a ridiculous joke. Federal government is threatening a labor union in a ‘democratic’ government?
    Federal government should pay up on their promises and show the Nigerian people they have our interest at heart. all this theatrics isn’t helping.
    As for the multitude that think ASUU is the problem; it just goes to show how uninformed you are.

    It’s now left for we nigerians to wake up from our slumber
    and vote out this naive gov’t (FG) come 2015. Common, it’s a known
    fact that a govt that toys with its country’s education is toying
    with its f-u-t-u-r-e!!!

    Why should senators be payed over $75,000 as salary and lecturers about a 100,000 naira? Which is about $690!! Which kind of country do we come from or live in? Why should the FG expect these lecturers to do their job properly if they’re not treated properly and shown any appreciation? These are the questions Mr zoologist of a President should ask himself. Who taught him what he knows today? Nigeria would make sooooo much money if Nigerians actually stayed and studied in the nation rather than spending so much money abroad. If the government invested in the universities and payed good salaries, I’m pretty sure we could compete with Asian countries. Can you believe that people go to Guinea-Bissau or Sudan to avoid strike? I mean those nations are great but what has Nigeria turned into? The 3rd richest African nation.
