ASUU Strike: UNICAL loses over 21 lecturers .


Report has it that up to 21 lectures and senior professor's have lost their life as a result of the on-going ASUU strike which have lingered to eight months now .

The daily increasing death of lecturers and professors is as a cause of no work ,no money to feed ,or met up to the needs of family " which in the other hands leads to malnutritional diseases .

Recalling that Academic Staff  Union of University(ASUU)  embarked on one month warning strike starting on February 14 earlier this year. Which have results to the locked down of universities going to eight good months now.

ASUU, alongside three other university-based unions, had declared the industrial dispute over about seven demands that they wanted the government to address.

The three university-based unions that joined in the strike but later suspended it after reaching an agreement with the government are the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU, and the National Association of Academic Technologists, NAAT.

Some of the demands of the four unions that led to the strike include the renegotiation of the 2009 agreements.

The alleged inconsistencies occasioned by the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, the non-payment of earned allowances, payment of arrears of the National Minimum wage.

The revitalization fund and the release of white papers on visitation panel reports among others.

While ASUU has developed its preferred payment platform, the University Transparency Accountability Solution, UTAS, the two non-teaching staff unions of SSANU and NASU demanded the replacement of IPPIS with the University Peculiar Personnel Payroll System, U3PS.

The Federal Government through the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige had met with the striking lecturers to resolve the impasse but all to no avail.

This resulted in the evocation of the “No work, no pay” policy by the government and the dragging of the striking workers to the National Industrial Court of Nigeria, NICN.

The court had last week in a ruling on an interlocutory injunction brought by the Federal Government, ordered ASUU to go back to work, while the negotiations on their demands goes on, but the university teachers have applied for a stay of execution on the ruling.

The NANS have embarked on protests for their interest of making sure that the Federal government adhere to ASUU demands and call off the ongoing strike ,which have drastically effected all the students and the lecturers as well.


All these deaths are as a result of the inconclusiveness of the on-going strike .
