ASUU National , Professor Biodun Ogunyemi issued the threat during a briefing with the Minister of , Adamu Adamu while giving an update on the ongoing renegotiation with the government over the contending N25 billion on Wednesday.

Ogunyemi said, “Since information on the amounts mentioned in the media went round, the ASUU has been inundated with enquiries on the union’s perspective to the story.

“Funding for the revitalisation of public universities has for years been of very high priority to ASUU.

“Reaching an agreement with the Federal Government has often been a frustrating journey for our union. It is often marked with protests, strikes and requires a conscious and focused engagement. The 2001 agreement, which gave birth to the 2009 agreement, was not an exemption. The exception here is the personality leading the government negotiation team.

“The current leadership of the government team clearly lacks the academic disposition and humility needed to undertake such task.

“Our members enjoy their and hate to see any disruption in the smooth running of our universities. However, the level of frustration occasioned by the lackadaisical attitude of the government towards meeting the terms of the 2019 Memorandum of Action that was freely signed with our union is increasingly becoming unbearable.

“We, therefore, call on all Nigerian patriots, parents and students including the to prevail on the government to keep to the terms of our agreement. Otherwise, our union should not be held responsible for any disruption in the system.”

Most offices were under lock and key, as members of both unions were seen singing solidarity songs and marching round the school premises.

Other academic activities were also affected as students were seen loitering on campus.

Addressing newsmen at the UNIPORT Campus, the branch Chairman of SSANU, Benard Eze, expressed grievances over the non-payment of their earn allowances by the Federal government.

According to Eze, “The agreement for earn allowances with the Federal Government was reached since 2009. It is 10 years now and nothing has been said about it. We are saying that those agreements are overdue. The things there are dead and worn-out.

“We want the Staff School Teachers to be reinstated. The earn allowance of N25billion where took 80% and they gave 20% to us is unacceptable. We are asking that the N30billion as backlog of the debt be paid to us.

“This is just a warning and see what is happening. By the time we start the indefinite one should just imagine how the strike will look like.”

On his part, the NASU Chairman, Ogbegbe Osoruchi lamented that so many members had since lost their lives in the struggle.
