ASUU Reacts To The Registration Of Two Academic Unions By The Federal Government

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has reacted to the registration of two trade unions by the government for academic staff,says that the registration is inconsequential and does not pose any threat to it’s existence.

Prof.Emnanuel Osodeke, the national president of ASUU, stated this while reacting to the registration of the two unions during a chat with The Vanguard.

The Nigerian government had on Tuesday registered two academic unions, the National Association of Medical and Dental Academics (NAMDA) and the congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA).

This comes as the Nigerian government and the main body of university lecturers,ASUU have been at loggerheads regarding a 2009 FG/ASUU agreement on the funding of university education.

The minister of labour and productivity, Chris Ngige, while issuing certificates to the two unions, said they will exist alongside ASUU.

Osodeke stated that the registration does not affect them in any way,as they are a disciplined and focused union and know what they are after.

He also described the allegation By the Presidency that ASUU members are complicit in the corrupt practices in the university system,as unfounded.
