ASUU: Your action shocking, disappointing – Senate tells union

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions, Senator Jibrin Barau, has expressed shock that the Association of Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has gone on strike.

He stated that a letter written to the Senate by ASUU of their intentions to embark on strike, which was the basis of their action was not in the best interest of the nation.
Barau said, Senate was already handling their grievances, and that it was not expected that they should go on strike now.
“We have good relationship with ASUU and that is why they take the Senate into confidence. But they seems to be missteps by the strike. Let them call off the strike and we will continue to dialogue”, the Chairman opined.
“I am optimistic that this is not the dead end. We are lawmakers and we monitor what happens, but let our children not stay at home,” he added.
According to him, ASUU explained that they did not have confidence in the Federal government over the 2009 negotiation which brothers on their allowances.

“In our appropriation this year, we took into cognizance those allowances they have been contesting for, so the Committee and entire Senate was surprised at the turn of events,” he insisted.
