ASUU Strike Will Not Be Called Off Until Nigerian Federal Government Meet Our Demand – Dr Fagge

asuu strike called off

Sept 5, 2013 – ASUU Strike Will Not Be Called Off Until Nigerian Federal Government Meet Our Demand – Dr Fagge

Dr Nasir Fagge, the current President of ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) confirmed today that the body will not be calling off this ongoing strike until the Federal Government of Nigeria meet their demand.

Dr Fagge said the essence of the strike is to force the FG to implement an agreement they made 4 years ago.

“I’m convinced that this is a good course that we have chosen for our education sector; to ensure that we get all that was agreed in 2009.

“The Federal Government are the ones on strike and not ASUU because they know what we want and can do it but just won’t do anything. Once they implement the agreement, everybody will be fine and we’ll get back to work,” Dr Fagge said

When queried on why ASUU strike is prolonged, he said student do not know what ASUU is actually fighting for.

We can’t call off the strike now and return to what we’ve been going through over the years. Or embark on the strike action again after three months or in one or two years’ time.”

We want the best for the students and calling off the strike without getting it will amount to a waste of time with all the protests. If the Federal Government doesn’t shift grounds, we’ll also remain here until we are attended to appropriately.”

ASUU strike 2013 is going to its second month now.

Why can’t the FG agree with them on time if they actually value education in this country?

      Fellow students, do u think GEJ is the problem? No he is not. ASUU demand is not justified as far as am concern cos these people hardly come to class and two weeks to exam they will come and start rushing us and giving handouts with huge sum. They said the strike is not about money then y not aCcept what the Govt has given them atleast for a start den return back to the table? They won’t cos they want money. Though the GOVT also has it own blames for nt negotiating well before signing the MOU, ASUU is very selfish and inconsiderate cos most of them are also employee os the private universities and their monthly alert has nt stopped if nt they would have call it off bcos they know hw much they make from selling of books on campus. Let GEJ returns from his trip to kenya so we see what happuns from there. Call or text me on +2348067050116

    hmmm, my anger is that the fg is now reluctant after d first attempt (we don try, if dem like make dem cal off. E nor concern us again). Which is nt fair. And God p dat labaran maku 4 saying govt wuld break down if it implements d agreement. THE GOVT SHULD BREAK DOWN 4 ALL I CARE.!

    what a pity for a naturally blessed nation nigeria that never bother about her future. we are being led by people who neither have managerial skill nor ready to lead us right. Fg, all d money you hoard in this life cant save you in the hearafter… pls fellow nigeria student, let go on protest for our own sake

    My advice to my fellow students is that, FG is not the determinant of anyones future. As the strike is on, use the opportunity to achieve other things in ur life, u can learn a new trade, or tailoring or hair dressing or how to drive, u can even get married, there are so many handiwork you can learn until the strike is over, atleast u won’t be empty by the time u resume school.

    I don’t care what happens. Govt should lear to take responsibility and do the one thing which is right. Assu should continue the strike until govt learn to do the right thing

    Pls Dr Fagge, find a way of resolving this issue. To me its like a battle without an end. We students are from different family background, we are not equal some parents manage to send their child to school. Time waits for no one. This strike is really affecting us. If the govt value education and knows that a country without education for its future is like digging pit for itself. Thanks
