Well meet to deliberate on court ruling – ASUU

National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke has said the leadership of the union that will soon meet to deliberate on the order of the National Industrial Court that ASUU to go back to work.

Recall that the Federal Government in a suit, had prayed for the order for ASUU to call off its seven months strike.

“When we meet and deliberate on the ruling and other related issues, we will inform you,” he told Journalists.

The National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS has described the ruling of the court that ASUU should go back to work, while the case involving it and the Federal Government is being heard, as a win-win situation for all the stakeholders in the matter.

The National President of NANS, Comrade Usman Barambu, told Vanguard on Wednesday that the Federal Government must, however, not see the ruling as a victory over ASUU.

“It is a win-win situation for all, the government, the students, parents and ASUU. It is not that the court has given the government a kind of victory over ASUU or that the government has boxed ASUU to a corner. As students, we are happy about the development as it a sort of progress being made regarding how to resolve the face-off.

“We implore the government to meet the demands of ASUU, as the court said negotiation will continue while the matter is being heard before the court. Also, the government should not because of the fact that the matter is still before the court take the issue of negotiation with ASUU with levity. It is still a running matter.

“As students, we are happy that academic activities may soon resume in our university campuses,” he said.

Similarly, parents under the aegis of the National Parent Teacher Association of Nigeria, NAPTAN, have reacted to the development.

Speaking through the National President, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, the body said the government and the union should obey the ruling of the court.

“Since it is a court of competent jurisdiction that gave the ruling, there is no way it should not be binding on the parties involved. Already, everybody involved seems to be tired of the endless strike. The situation is heading to a dangerous dimension as students are beginning to protest and block roads all over the country.

“As parents, we are already becoming afraid that the protests could be hijacked by hoodlums and the unexpected happening. Now, there is hope that our children may go back to school soon. But our advice for the government is that they should do the needful regarding their obligations to the union members, the students, the university system and education sector as a whole, ” he stated.

FG begs ASUU to accept IPPIS

The federal government has begged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to accept the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system (IPPIS) with the promise of improving the payment platform to fit the needs of the lecturers.

The Accountant General of the Federation, Sylvia Okolieaboh, made the plea on Thursday during the meeting between the union and the federal government at the House of Representatives.

Recall that the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila had last week called for an extended meeting of all stakeholders in the education sector to resolve the over seven months strike.

The Accountant General said the government will accommodate the union on the issue of salaries in a bid to end the strike.

He insisted that the government is concerned over the ripple effect of allowing ASUU to have a separate payment platform from others.

“If there are peculiarities in the university salaries system, what we need to do is to sit down with ASUU and identify them and address them in IPPIS. We are willing to accept.”

This is the third meeting brokered by the House of Representatives, like many others, the meeting did not yield any agreement.

Others at the meeting included the head of service, Folashade Esan, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, the President of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke.

In his closing remarks, Mr Gbajabiamila said will compile all recommendations and submit them to President Muhammadu Buhari as a single report.

He stated that “We are appealing to you, the Judiciary has spoken, the Executive has spoken, the Legislature is about to speak together with the Executive; everybody cannot be wrong and only one person is right. For me I’m happy with the solution on UTAS, no victor, no vanquished, everybody is being carried along.

“For the sake of emphasis, the House is pleading with you, let’s put all interest aside and look at the interest of our children.”

“Government should implement fully the safe schools’ declaration guidelines endorsed by Nigeria in 2015 and ratified by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
