ASUU Strike: FG Summons Vice-Chancellors, University Councils

Strike: ASUU To Meet With FG On Tuesday

The Federal Government has summoned vice-chancellors, pro-chancellors, and chairmen of governing councils of federal varsities to a meeting following the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The September 6th, 2022 meeting was convened in a letter by the National Universities Commission (NUC) as part of efforts to resolve the industrial dispute.

As the pro-chancellors and chairmen of councils and the vice-chancellors are quite aware the industrial action by University-based unions has led to the closure of the institutions since February 2022.

You are also aware that the non-teaching unions have suspended their industrial actions with effect from 24th August 2022, while a final decision is being awaited from the Academic Staff Union of Universities,” NUC’s letter read.

It added: “It has become necessary for the governing councils and the management of the universities to be briefed on the decisions and actions taken by the Federal Government so far to allow for a well-coordinated review of the situation including building consensus around succeeding actions.

“Consequently, I am to invite the pro-chancellors and chairmen of councils as well as vice-chancellors of federal universities to a special interactive meeting with the Honourable Minister of Education on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.”

Vice-Chancellors are requested to bring this notice to the attention of their respective Pro Chancellors and facilitate their attendance, accordingly,” the letter issued by the NUC Deputy Executive Secretary (Administration), Chris J. Maiyaki, read.

“Please accept the assurances of the Executive Secretary’s highest regards always.”
