FG Reacts To ASUU’ Planned Nationwide Strike


The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has said government is not aware of the grounds for the planned strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

A statement by the ministry on Friday said ASUU had not officially communicated such decision.

The terse statement added: “When we do so, we shall look into the matter, the ground of agitation by ASUU, this will include of course dialoguing with both parties; we are conciliators and be rest assured we are working relentlessly to ensure industrial harmony.”
