The National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke has stated that the move by the government to register CONUA cannot be a threat the work of ASUU.

Osodeke claimed that it makes no difference because the development cannot threaten his union.

The government recently registered two new trade unions for academic employees within the university system, but the Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has responded that this does not constitute a threat to its existence.

“That does not in any way affect us. We are a disciplined and focused union and we know what we are doing and what we are after. Let them register as many unions as they like. The sky is big enough for birds to fly,” Osodeke poured out.

He added that ASUU members are aware of the organization’s goal and mission and denied that any of them are saboteurs or bootlickers.

ASUU has been on strike for 234 days, and according to President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s administration is unable to provide the necessary funding to restore the nation’s educational system.

Buhari added that the recent growth in the number of tertiary schools in Nigeria had increased the rivalry for funding.

On Saturday, October 1, 2022, the president gave a speech at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka’s 49th convocation event.

He claimed that the global economic crisis, which also had an impact on national revenue, had made matters financially worse.
