Wothappen reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Calabar, Branch, has disclosed that some understanding has been reached, while some shifting of grounds has been made but only National Executive Council (NEC), will convey the resolutions.
Addressing newsmen shortly after its Congress at the International Conference centre on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, Chairman ASUU, UNICAL, Dr. Edor John also cautioned that the Federal government should focus on tackling the issues bedeviling ASU adding that there was no need trying to divide them by registering other bodies or Union with a view of breaking their ranks.
“But it is a process arising from the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Rt Hon Femi Gbajabiamila to see if there can be an amicable and “Speedy” resolution.
“Some understanding have been reached, some shifting of grounds have been made, so we need to process these at the various organs of the Union and the final resolutions will be taken at NEC when we meet on Thursday,” he said.
Speaking further on ASUU Strike, John said that the branch cannot suspend the strike stressing that only NEC has the power to do so while maintaining that no government official should be thinking of dividing ASUU anymore.
Wothappen Nigeria reports that the UNICAL ASUU Chairman urged the Federal government to jettison the idea of proscribing ASUU stressing that the University of Calabar does not have any member of the Congress of Nigerian University Academics, CONUA, and doesn’t know of any.
