Last Updated on

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige on Tuesday evening revealed that the ministries of Finance, Labour and Employment, Education and the office of the accountant general of the Federation will meet with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

He said this when he appeared on Channels Television and also made it known that ASUU will soon suspend their strike

Ngige said:

“The issue of ASUU will soon come to an end. Two reasons – ASUU have called the Federal Government, represented by Finance and the Accountant-General Office and their direct employers, the Ministry of Education to come for the test.

“We are ready to do that. After the Independence Day celebration, the four ministries and agencies involved will gather together with ASUU.

We will look at the UTAS. If there are shortcomings with IPPIS as complained which UTAS have corrected. What’s wrong about it? It is software, we will look at it.

“Secondly, ASUU members have been collecting their money since COVID-19 came and I wrote a memo to Mr President that ASUU members are still Nigerians. Even the members, have families that they care for. By upper week, we are going to arrange for this demonstration.”
