ASUU NEC Meeting to Hold Tomorrow, Friday

ASUU NEC Meeting to Hold Tomorrow, Friday:

The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, Dr Lawan Abubakar has debunked media reports that the union had postponed its National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting slated for tomorrow.

He restated that the leadership of the Union postponed the scheduled NEC meeting at Bayero University, Kano, following the demise of Festus Iyayi, a former President, who died last Tuesday in a motor accident along the Abuja-Lokoja highway.

A car in the convoy of Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada, had hit the vehicle conveying the deceased and some ASUU members, leading to Iyayi’s death. Others injured are presently receiving treatment.

Abubakar who spoke in Bauchi further denied that the striking lecturers had accepted the over N1trillion offered by the Federal Government.

“There is no iota of truth in that. What the union is agitating for is the full implementation of the 2009 agreement and nothing less,” he said.

The Union has been on strike since July 1 over the 2009 agreement it reached with the Federal Government.

Its leadership has said it will deliberate on the current Federal Government’s offer and take a position after Friday’s NEC meeting.
