Senate President blasts FG for signing unrealistic agreement with ASUU ‎


Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Monday blasted the Federal Government for signing what he described as an ‘unrealistic’ agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

Lawan spoke after a meeting where ASUU presented its alternative payroll system, the University Transparency and Accountability Solution to the Senate.‎

Faulting the Federal Government for the prolonged strike by ASUU, the Senate President said, “When we negotiate, we must negotiate in such a manner that the final product will be implementable.

“This is to say that we have to accommodate each other with government doing what it is supposed to do and ASUU, being the body of our lecturers, stands to protect its members.‎

However, he also pleaded with the ASUU not to be too rigid in its demands in order to move the country forward.

He said, “I am sure that we need to review some of the items on the agreements.

“We cannot have an agreement signed in 2009 and still think this is the only way we can deal with it.

“We should be able to have a look at the agreements signed and see at this time whether or not some of the issues are really practicable at all.”

The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who addressed journalists after a three-hour closed-door session with the leadership of the Senate, said the visit was a follow up to the earlier one held between ASUU and the Senate in October 2019 to find a way out of the IPPIS crisis.
