Reps move to avert strike actions by university unions Nigeria Senate 600x400 1 300x200

The House of Representatives has called on the Federal Government to release earned allowances of Non-Teaching Staff of Nigerian Universities from 2009 to 2016.
This followed a motion of Urgent Public Importance by Hon. Aisha Dukku at plenary on Thursday.
The call was aimed at averting the impending strike by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities and the Non-Academic Staff Union.
Moving the motion, Dukku said that the unions had directed their branches to mobilise members for a nationwide protest before embarking on strike.
She said the action was as a result of refusal of the federal government to recall sacked workers of University Staff Schools as well as alleged discriminatory attitude of government towards members of the unions.
Dukku expressed concern that the unions decried exclusion of their members from being part of National University Pension Company soly operated by Academic Staff Association of University.
She said: “The alleged preferential treatment extended to ASUU by the Federal Government is seen in recent allocation of money by the Ministry of Education.
“The ministry allocated 80 per cent of the money to ASUU and only 29 per cent for non-teaching staff unions.”
According to Dukku, the way and manner the money is being shared is contrary to any known accounting procedure.
She said that if the concerns of the unions were not addressed on time, they would go ahead and shut down the universities in the country.
Hon. Tajudeen Yussuf applauded Dukku for bringing up the motion on the floor of the house.
He blamed the incessant strike in the universities to the inability of parties to keep to the terms of agreement already made.
Yussuf said that to address the matter, the agreement reached by the parties must be implemented.
The legislator said that the incessant strained action had resulted to the emergence of “mushroom universities” in the country.
The legislators also resolved to set up a committee to interface with the federal government and the unions with a view to resolving the matter.
In his ruling, the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, mandated the committee to ensure compliance with the

The warning became necessary following the controversies and public criticism that greeted the killing of three policemen and a civilian last week by soldiers on the Ibi-Wukari Road in Taraba State.

Col. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Acting spokesman for the DHQ, Colonel gave the warning while reminding Nigerians that the police and the army are two very important services in the country.

He said that concern should be geared at ensuring the joint panel constituted undertakes an exhaustive investigation.

When asked by The Nation about the captain alleged to have been responsible for the unauthorised shootings and release of the suspected kidnapper, Nwachukwu said, “That information did not come from me. Our concern is to allow the panel do a thorough job and avoid comments that heat up the situation. We are trying to apply some restraint on this issue to avoid pitching the police against the army.

“These are two very important institutions in Nigeria and it will be most unfair to this nation to pit them against each other or the personnel of each service against the other.

“What is important is that lives have been lost and this is a difficult time for the families of the victims. We should be more concerned at looking into the human angles, the psychological traumas these families are going through.

“Our concern should be that the panel does exhaustive investigation and gets to the bottom of the matter. So, I would not like to begin to make comments that would pre-empt the investigation or its outcome.”
