ASUU Describes Confab as Mere Talk Shop with no Democratic Legitimacy:

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has described the ongoing National Conference as a mere talk shop without democratic legitimacy.

He concluded that the National Conference “is not a democratic conference: it fails the most important mark of democratic decisions.

The universities lecturer’s union condemned the abduction of over 200 school girls of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok urging the Federal Government to take urgent steps in rescuing them.

They also condemned the use of tear gas and water in dispersing the procession of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) and the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) asking the government to fulfill the agreement it entered into with the unionists. (Daily Trust)
