After envisaging a judgement against the union, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) revealed yesterday that the union cannot be compelled to return to classes. This was disclosed by ASUU national president, Emmanuel Osodeke during a parley with Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, Guardian Newspaper reports.

 

ASUU national president, Emmanuel Osodeke, says the association will not be forced to resume classes. Osodeke, accompanied by ASUU executives, likened the scenario to a court order to force a medical doctor to treat a patient.

 

Going further, Osodeke maintained that ASUU remains blameless about the closure of public universities. He warned that the universities, which account for over 95 per cent intake of students, face the risk of depreciating to the level of public primary schools within the next 10 years.

 

Meanwhile, there is a strong indication that the lingering strike imposed by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will be over soon. The president of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke, noted that in “…the very near future, the issue of strike will be resolved.” Osodeke said this on Tuesday, September 20, after meeting with the leadership of the House of Representatives in Abuja.

 

On his part, the speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, has stated that some resolutions have been made with the union. So far, the lower chamber has also invited the accountant-general of the federation, National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), auditor-general of the federation, and the National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) to conclude on the agreement made with the union.
