The Academic Staff Union of University ASUU, has replied the honorable Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, following a press statement he released yesterday regarding ASUU strike in the country.

ASUU alleged that the Labour Minister, Chris Ngige lied in his press statement he released yesterday, Tuesday, 8th December 2020.

The Education body said it read with dismay the press release issued yesterday by the Labour Minister, Mr. Chris Ngige.

However, ASUU said: “What amazed them most is the selective implementation of the so-called section 43 of the Trade Disputes Act of “No work, No pay” and for the record, it is a well-known fact that the FG decided to stop payment of salaries of patriotic and loyal members of ASUU who have been on strike since March 2020 to press home their demand for a better university system in Nigeria, ASUU added.

Nevertheless, Mr. Ngige should note that university teachers will not return to classes until all their outstanding salaries are paid to the last kob, ASUU noted.

“ASUU Strike: Ngige Lied!”

“I read with dismay the press release issued yesterday by the Labour Minister, Mr. Chris Ngige. For the record, it is a well-known fact that the FG decided to stop payment of salaries of patriotic and loyal members of ASUU who have been on strike since March 2020 to press home their demand for a better university system in Nigeria.”

“ezWhat amazed me most is the selective implementation of the so-called section 43 of the Trade Disputes Act of “No work, No pay”. While most of the members had their salaries withheld for several months, the few members who went against the union’s order and enrolled on the IPPIS are being paid up to date. The question is: Have they been working? The answer is capital No.”

“Mr. Ngige should simply tell Nigerians that the government is set to deal with loyal ASUU members for not enrolling on the IPPIS. He should also make effort to see that the section quoted above is modified to read “No IPPIS, No Pay”.”

“To cap it all, Mr. Ngige in that release asserted that No federal civil servant was paid November 2020 salary! That was a big lie, we can authoritatively confirm that all the Non-Academic staff has been paid their November 2020 salary!”

“Mr. Ngige should note that university teachers will not return to classes until all their outstanding salaries are paid to the last kobo.”
