ASUU STRIKE - OUR POSITION

The Academic Staff Universities Union has earlier embarked on a four week warning strike to ensure that their demands are met by the federal Government. The demands include; the implementation of the 2009 agreement, revitalization of the University system, payment of earned allowances, change in payment methods from IPPIS to UTAS among others.

However, as the warning strike winds off, the federal government has not exhibited the traits of meeting the demands.

This is not only bad for the lecturers but terrible for the University system. As a student body, we are poised towards a better educational system and stand completely with ASUU on this sojourn.

It is highly imperative for the Federal Government to note that quality education is the bedrock of every Nation's development, and as such it will be very unwise to poorly fund the system or neglect adequate welfarism of our teachers.

Alongside other stakeholders, we call on the federal government to meet the demands of the Universities' lecturers so that they can resume to classes.

If they fail to do that, we will embark on a constructive means of ensuring compliance and adherence to the 2009 agreement among other demands. While we do this, we urge all Unilorites and every Nigerian student to stand up as we join forces together to fight for our right - quality education.
