Mr. Yunusa Abdulkadir, a state director for the Department of State Services (DSS), has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end its strike.
The DSS Director for Yobe State, Abdulkadir, stated that the ongoing ASUU strike has security ramifications and that insurgents would exploit the circumstance.
He presented the proposal on Thursday in Damaturu, according to Anaedoonline.ng, at the Third Quarterly Conference of the State Directors of Security in the North-East Zone.
“In as much as we know that ASUU is pursuing a genuine cause, they should take a deeper look at the peculiarities of North-East region that has stayed for over a decade in the hands of insurgents,” Yunusa said.
It has been a strike by ASUU since February 14, 2022. The revival of public universities, the payment of deserved academic allowances, and the implementation of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) for the payment of university lecturers’ wages are some of the demands of the striking lecturers.
Recall that after closing the educational institutions for seven months, the National Industrial Court of Nigeria (NICN) on Wednesday, September 21, ordered ASUU to reopen all public universities and report to their jobs.
According to Anaedoonline.ng, the federal government’s petition was filed in court on behalf of the minister of labor and employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, which led to the NICN directive.
Despite a court ruling requiring the academics on strike to return to work, the federal administration of Nigeran has promised that talks with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will go forward.
Chris Ngige, the minister of labor and employment, informed people of this.
Ngige stated that the court decision is a situation where “no victor, no vanquished” during a meeting with members of the Nigerian Association of Medical and Dental Academics on Wednesday in Abuja.
