The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has queried universities going against its decision to remain on strike as negotiations with the federal government continue.
President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.
The union had been on strike for about four months, resilient in its demands with include the revitalization of public universities, Earned Academic Allowances, use of the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), and promotion arrears.
However, some members of the union have pulled out of the ongoing strike to resume their academic activities, a move which the union has kicked against.
Prof Emmanuel Osodeke said, “We will punish those who have pulled out from our ongoing strike the appropriate way. We will ensure to query them and we will follow it up the appropriate way. We have even queried some of them in accordance with the union.”
The president of the union also noted that since the last Tripartite Plus meeting called by the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, on the ongoing strike over a month ago, there had been no other meeting. Osodeke said there has been no meaningful result from the last meeting held at the Aso Rock Villa.
