Reopening: We are still on strike until FG meets our demands, ASUU says

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reacted to the federal government’s directives for the full reopening of all schools in Nigeria including tertiary institutions and unity colleges.

The body’s president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, on Friday, October 2, said institutions cannot reopen because ASUU is still on strike.

Ogunyemi, who noted that the federal government has the right to reopen, however, stated that lecturers will continue to withhold their service.

The ASUU president also insisted that lecturers will not return to classes until the federal government recognised and promptingly considered its agreement with the body in 2009.

Addressing the controversy over the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), Ogunyemi said the platform is not effective.

According to him, IPPS is creating another a wide avenue for government officials to siphon the public funds.

The university don said:

“We did not close the universities. It is the right of the government to reopen the universities. It is also the right of lecturers to withhold their services.”
