ASUU’S President accuses FG officials of sabotage
August 2, 2022
The president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Emmanuel Osodeke, has said federal bureaucrats are “throwing wedges” into the union’s negotiations with the government.
Osodeke stated this this Tuesday, saying negotiations with the government have not been fruitful owing to actions of some government officials at the federal level.
He said a worker at the National Salaries, Income and Wages Commission (NSIWC), a government establishment supervised by the ministry of finance, reportedly lied to the government that ASUU threw him out of one of the negotiations.
The ASUU president said actions like this have made negotiations with the federal government futile; hence the reason the strike lingers.
Recall that on Monday, ASUU extended its ongoing strike by four weeks.
