The Minister of State for Education, Mr. Emeka Nwajiuba, has condemned members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Joint Action Committee of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Education and Associated Institutions for embarking on strike, leading to a complete shutdown of higher institutions of learning.
The Minister during an interview described the unions’ continuous strike actions as an act of wickedness considering the fact that the government has agreed to their demands and would still pay them their entitlement.
He, however, applauded polytechnics and college of education workers who were willing to suspend their strike and continue working while negotiations are ongoing, saying ASUU and its counterparts were being mean and wicked, not just to the government, but to Nigerians as a whole.
ASUU’s strike has officially entered its 50th day today, April 5, 2022.
