The Federal Government and the striking Academic Staff
Union of Universities have reached a partial agreement, Dr.
Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment,
announced on Monday.
Ngige made the announcement at a reconciliation meeting
in Abuja aimed at finding ways of resolving the strike which
commenced on November 5.
He said: “We have finished our deliberation for today.
“I am happy to report that we touched some areas of
understanding in implementation from the Memorandum of
Action, which we agreed to in 2017.
“Some of these areas we have substantial compliance and
some other areas have not been fully dealt with.
“Like the issue of shortfall in salaries of some Federal
Universities’ workers and lecturers, ASUU has given a list to
the Accountant-General’s Office and we have agreed that by
Wednesday that list should be cross-checked by the
Presidential Initiative on Continuous Auditing.
“So, the Accountant-General’s Office is to get back to us by
Wednesday.
“We also have the issue of Earned Allowances,
revitalisation, these are issues of 2009 agreement and
partial implementation and we have agreed on the modus
operandi to look into the fund situation, this is due to low
revenue on the part of government. ”
Ngige noted that the meeting had identified one area to
look for the fund for the revalidation and that the
appropriate government organ would be contacted on the
issue.
