ASUU Joins NLC in Strike Action over the hike in fuel pump price see why…..
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has presently asked to join the NLC in the strike action over the hike of petrol price.
Yesterday 17th of May 2016 the National President of the body, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi sent out letters Nationwide to the congress. The President of the association Ogunyemi added that is obnoxious and callous for federal government to remove subsidy androl pump price from N87 to N145 in little space of time.
Read part of Ogunyemi’s letter
“Increase in Pump price of Premium Motor Spirit to N145 per litre Proposal for Joint Action with NLC stated that ASUU members are called upon to according to our Union’s principles, fully respect Article 2 of the Constitution of ASUU; that our Union and members shall work for the protection and advancement of the socio-economic interests of the nation. Branch Chairpersons are to conduct emergency congress meetings on Tuesday 17 May 2016 to mobilise our members for the action commencing on Wednesday. All branches of ASUU nationwide are to comply”
Ogunyemi, added the reasons for joining the NLC strike which is as follows “delayed, partially paid and in most cases unpaid salaries for a number of months by state, federal and local governments, disguised retrenchment of workers, especially by State Governments, in the name of verification exercise and endless hunt for ghost workers and heavy taxation”.
