ASUU can’t call off its ongoing industrial strike now – NLC tells Senate
The Nigeria Labour Congress President on Tuesday said it would be difficult for the Academic Staff Union of Universities to call off its ongoing industrial strike.
NLC President , Ayuba Wabba, revealed this when he showed before the Senate Committee on Aviation to present the position of the union on the six bills being considered by the panel to transform the agencies in the sector.
He said ASUU could not call off the strike when the issue under consideration still remains.
Asked if NLC would advise ASUU to resume while negotiations continues, Wabba proclaimed, “That is not how negotiations are done.”
“ If before the action commences, we were able to reach a negotiation, then we would have resolved the issues.
“We are already on the action before those issues arose. I don’t think that is the best way to go. Government should show enough commitment to resolve the issue once and for all.”
