Why We Cannot End ASUU Strike Now- Ogunyemi -

Why we cannot end ASUU strike now- Ogunyemi - Businessday NG

.. expresses concern over looming brain drain
Why we cannot end ASUU strike now- Ogunyemi

There are indications that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may not be calling off its eight weeks old strike anytime soon despite offers by the federal government.

The Union has insisted that it will only call off the the 8-month old strike when it sees significant commitment of the federal government towards fulfilling its promise to the union.

ASUU had embarked on the strike following disagreement it had with the government over refusals to bring its members under the federal government Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), which it said does not capture its peculiar situation, adding that it will bring it under government bureaucracy, and erodes it autonomy

ASUU therefore, proceeded to develop what it described as ” a more transparent pay system” named the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as an alternative to the IPPIS

Following the disagreement, ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike in March over several issues including the non-implementation of agreements and resolutions the government reached with the union in 2009.

Thus, despite several meetings with the federal government, both parties had remained resolute on its position, until recently when the federal government offered the sum of N65 billion to ASUU to call off the lingering strike

Labour Minister, Chris Ngige had while speaking on the latest offer, disclosed that N15 billion of the amount would be dedicated for revitalisation of universities.

N20 billion, he said, was offered to the union, which makes it N35 billion earmarked for revitalization of infrastructure in the universities.

The government therefore, urged the Vice-chancellors across public universities to submit details of the Earned Academic Allowances EAA to the National Universities Commission (NUC) before November 30.

But Biodun Ogunyemi, President, ASUU in an interview with BusinessDay on Thursday said that the union is yet to meet with other branches of the union to deliberate on the offer. He however said the decision to call of the strike will be taken very soon

“We assure our students that once we see significant improvements in what government is planning to do and see them actually doing what they promised we will not hesitate to call off the strike.

The ASUU President when pressed further, said
“I will not be the one to determine if ASUU will call off the strike, we have sent the latest offers to our branches and we will meet very soon to consider and get back to government if not tomorrow (friday), it will be very soon

This is just as the ASUU President warned that the country may face another wave of brain drain following the poor commitment of government towards addressing the demand of the union and ultimately address the different levels of rot in Nigeria’s education system.

Ogunyemi wondered why the federal government had refused to raise a Visitation Panel to its Universities for over ten years now, as against provisions that such panels must visit the Universities, every five years.

Such visits, he said would allow the government to evaluate the true state of infrastructure in the Universities.

Ogunyemi, said Nigerian Universities not only lack the basic infrastructure to keep scholars in the sector, but the very few available facilities are already going obsolete and government’s will to address the matter has been tragic.

The ASUU President said the immediate cause of the the lingering crisis remains the non implementation of the 2019 Memorandum of Action (MOA) signed with the federal government on 7th February 2019.

He decried that government have made several promises to the union for several years which has not been actualized despite the Memorandum of understanding and Actions signed.

According to him, some of these issues include the revitalization fund, which has been on since 2009; Earned Academic Allownaces which government agreed to pay in four installments in 2019, the failure of government to carry out Visitation to public universities. He siad the last Visitation was conducted in January 2011 and government promised to inaugurate Visitation panels but has not fulfilled it.

“Government made several promises on all these but have not been able ro fulfil them. Government is now trying to play a trick against the union”, he cried

The President disclosed that only N20 billion of the N1.3 trillion naira have been committed by the Muhammadu-Buhari led administration to revitalise university.

“Let me put it bluntly, government has not addressed revitilization that is why it’s still an issue”, he said.

He recalled that in 2013 under Jonathan government conducted a NEEDS assessment on universities and agreed to inject a total of 1.3 trillion into Publuc universities for six years after seeing the level of decay, but only successfully paid the the first tranche of 200 bn, while 220 billion is to be paid for the next 5 years, but regrets that the Muhammadu Buhari Administration has not done anything meaningful to that regards.

Ogunyemi explained that of the N65 billion offered by government to lure the union into calling of the strike only N25 billion is for revitalization instead of the agreed N110 billion, while 40 billion was meant to address Earned Academic Allowances (EAA).

On other demands of the union, particularly the IPPIS and its proposed UTAS, the ASUU president said, despite the “powerful lobby and gang up ” UTAS will surely see the light of the day.

He insisted that the university system has its peculiarities, adding that IPPIS will not allow the University its autonomy

” We cannot embark on recruitment without clearance from the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation which will take away the autonomy of Universities.” he said

According to him, the universities will among other things lose its autonomy and deprive students of learning in line with global beat practicesm

“You don’t put University under the armpit of civil service because you are now exposing them to the risk of bureaucracy. Universities are unique its not like civil service where you just unify all allowances and payroll.

” Under IPPIS, We cannot attract scholars from other climes to share global practices .IPPIS will not allow that because it means you will have to go and clear with the head of service . What we call over time excess work load, administrative allowances are not the same as the civil service”, he said.

The ASUU President recalled that in the 1990s , Nigeria had the first wave of brain drain adding that the country is yet to recover from it, even as he regretted that government is yet to create the enabling environment for scholars to compete with their counterpart on ither climes.

This, according to him is evident in the lingering strikes following failure of government to commit funds to the revitalization of the university system after several years of clamour and agitations for several years.

He disclosed that only N20 billion of the N1.3 trillion naira have been committed by the Muhammadu-Buhari led administration to revitalise infrastructure in universities across the country

He pointed out that the union is not just pushing for the adoption of the home grown UTAS for the interest of the union alone, but for the benefit of the entire country.

According to him, ” IPPIS was imposed on Nigeria by the world bank and the leadership of Nigeria has consequently been sold to world bank and IMF.”

“Nigeria is not free, Nigeria is in chains, if informed Nigerians know the level of bondage the country has been put into, we will all join hands with ASUU

“Our government took a loan of 140 million dollars to implement IPPIS and we are bringing a platform that Nigeria will not need to pay any foreign currency to service, which one is better? Is it something that will enslave us or something that will liberate us. We are clear about the reasons for accept IPPIS”, he said.

OPINION: Let Our Educated Young Men, Age Limit 18-21 Years Of Age Take Over The New SWAT Team To Be Created.
~2.5 mins read
Still due to the rising corruption and indiscipline of the Nigerian government, most of the Nigerian arm forces educated aspirants are not granted the opportunity to defend the Nation and the citizens within, instead uneducated and ignorant personnels are placed in positions meant to be for intelligent, educated and informed youths of the public who are willing to be part of the Nation's defences.

I don't see any reason why anyone in the political seat has not known that the cause of this brutality of the so called SARS operatives is due to the ignorant and low education level of these operatives. If the government was transparent and true enough, SARS operatives are men who the public are to rely upon, anywhere we see them we were meant to be proud that we're truly protected, instead whenever these uneducated bastards are seen, the public tends to get tensed cause they know what's coming next. This should be stopped immediately and all operatives of SARS ( I don't care if innocent or not) should be sacked without hesitation from this unit, because if you place the same people in the new SWAT team to be formed, nothing's going to change at all and the brutality is going to be fierce because according to the name SWAT, more tactical weapons and equipment will be handled by this uneducated bastards who don't even know what human rights is called. 

So I suggest, because I know that every nation should have at least a tactical and intelligent team and Nigeria should have it also due to our rise in criminal activities daily, instead of retaking the old naive,ignorant and uneducated fools called SARS into this newly formed SWAT team, most of our young able educated men are still out there seeking to join the armed forces of Nigeria and SWAT operations are all about intelligence and tactics not just going out to get criminals but doing it in a more intelligent manner so that no innocent casualties will be involved or deceased in the operations, so I suggest the IGP reconsiders and place young able and well educated men seeking to join the force, train them to be very tactical and intelligent in all operations that'll be carried out, I know most of our young men has already been educated about the basic human rights, but more education on the human rights should still be given to them, and the legislative arm of government should sign a law that any unlawful act of brutality by any special force or unit to Innocent citizens of the nation should be looked into and the brutal operatives should be prosecuted with immediate effect. The IGP should also make sure the new recruits would av a foundation of at least O' level certification for them to be qualified for this SWAT and applicants to this SWAT team should be at most 18-23 years of age( still young to accumulate more knowledge)
If the government are not truly corrupt I don't know why they wouldn't have thought of this, it will even help most of our young men who only have O' level result and are not opportuned to get into the universities, they can also be used for the betterment of the nation.

So my fellow Nigerians what do we say about this, because if there are no tactical teams in Nigeria, some of our fellow protesters even have negative intentions after SARS has been ended and there are no more sophisticated teams to handle severe criminal cases which would be more harmful to citizens. Believe me, criminals are still out there.

So what do you think should our young ones be placed in this new position or what.
Please share.
NECO Ends Exam Without Rescheduling Missed Papers
~1.8 mins read

Some parents and school owners have complained that the National Examination Council has yet to reschedule the missed subjects even as the exam ends on Saturday.

The PUNCH had reported that students in some schools couldn’t sit for some subjects due to the #EndSARS protests.

Subjects such as Economics, Commerce, Technical Drawing and Chemistry practical, were not taken in some states, including Lagos, Bayela, Edo and Rivers.

A parent who resides in Mushin on Thursday said her daughter missed some three subjects, adding that she had yet to be told the new dates for the exams.

“I went to her school this afternoon (Thursday) to ask their proprietor but he told me they have not heard from NECO. These children are worried, we the parents are confused too, NECO should please do the needful,” she said

Proprietor of Abifab College, Ikorodu, Abidemi Faboye, said, “The children and their parents have been disturbing me if I have heard anything from NECO, but I told them nothing yet. The exam is ending on November 28. We are still waiting for NECO.”

NECO had said nobody immediately notified the council of the development.

However, both NECO Head of Public Relations Division, Azeez Sanni, and the Lagos State officer of NECO, Saad Ibrahim, said a statement would be released before Friday.

But as of press time, NECO had yet to make any official statement.

Efforts to get responses from Sanni and Ibrahim on Thursday proved abortive as their mobile phones rang out.
