Since Federal Government has failed to meet the needs of ASUU, it is no more news that the Academics Staffs Union of University have gone on industrial actions for weeks now.
In fact its now a norm for there to be a nationwide industrial action in every regime, either from NLC, TUC, ASUU or any of the major labor union.
Industrial action is not a good one where there is conflict of interest, it is the last resort as its is accompanied with diverse effects.
These industrial actions has cripple different sectors and adversely affected the Nigerian Economy at large.
The effect of this strike cannot be over emphasize.
ASUU has come out to unveil menace to the public that the Federal Government is having the having the knife in there hands, by bringing them to actions.
Professor Ogunyemi who gave graphical details of agreements ASUU had with the federal government since 2009, said they are yet to be honoured despite promises made to the union.
“If the government refuses to negotiate, we will unfold our next agenda. Let’s wait and see. When we get there we will cross it.
While lamenting what he called decay in the country’s university education which he said were occasioned by the nonchalant attitude of government the ASUU leader said: “Nigeria can fund free education if the government shows the right attitude to education, block all leakages and curb corruption. If the government can give N80bn to banks as a bailout why not to the education sector?”
Past leaders of ASUU, Professor Sule Abdullahi Kano and Professor Nasir Issa Fagge in their separate remarks urged parents, students and the public to see reasons with ASUU. “We urge you to support and work with us to get out of the mess Nigeria educational system is into,” they said.
