ASUU strike ‘unconstitutional’ – FG

The Federal Government has described the proposed strike by university lecturers, under the aegis of Academic Staff Union of Universities. ASUU, as ‘unconstitutional.’

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who stated this, however, also appealed to ASUU to rescind its decision to embark on the one week warning strike from November 16.

Ngige, in a statement issued by Samuel Olowokere, Deputy Director of Press in the Ministry, “The claims of nationwide consultations by ASUU cannot be true as the Ministry of Labour and Employment which is the chief conciliator of industrial relations disputes is yet to receive a direct petition from ASUU.
