  • Strike: ASUU Goes Tough On FG, Vows To Resist Hike In Tuition Fees In Nigerian Universities
  • The President of Academic Staff
    Union of Universities (ASUU), Biodun
    Ogunyemi, has vowed that the union
    will resist any attempt to increase
    tuition fees in the country’s public
    universities.
    While speaking in an exclusive chat with
    Premium Times, the ASUU president also
    assured that the union will embark on an
    industrial action if the federal government
    fails to meet its demand on adequate
    funding of the institutions and payment of
    salaries.
    He said: “We will not tolerate any
    attempt to increase tuition fee, we
    are against telling people to pay
    more, even the current fees, we
    are still fighting them, we as a
    body have always stood against
    fee increment and we will continue
    to stand against it.”
    The statement by the union leader is
    coming on the back of reports of a
    possible increase in tuition fees in
    universities by the federal government.
    Mr Ogunyemi also stated that the union
    has been engaging the federal government
    since November 2016 on issues rocking
    the university system.
    “The truth is there are lots of
    issues rocking the system. We
    have made our position known to
    the federal government; we have
    also written to state governments
    who have refused to give
    subvention to their universities,”
    he said.
    “Some of them cannot sustain one
    university and they go on to
    establish two or three,
    compounding the issues.
    “We have given the government till
    June ending to attend to our
    needs, if the government does not
    call us by June ending we will
    convey a meeting to take our
    position.
    “However, we are trying to engage
    the government but if they don’t
    invite us to a meeting before June
    ending, we will still take our
    position on whether we are going
    on strike or not.
    “But that will not be like early July
    but middle or late July, that is if
    they don’t heed to our demands
    which includes payment of
    salaries, funding, research and lots
    more”.
    When asked if ASUU would initiate a
    meeting with the federal government, he
    said “We will not initiate any meeting if
    they don’t call us, we can’t initiate
    meeting.”
