Unilorin VC Urges ASUU, FG To End Strike As School Celebrates 26th Convocation

VC, University of Ilorin, Prof Ambali
The Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Professor Abdulganiyu Ambali, has appealed to the federal government and striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to have a change of mind by putting the interests of the students first and embrace dialogue so as to put an end to the ongoing strike.

Ambali made the appeal yesterday in his address at the school’s 26th convocation ceremony titled: “Victory at last,” noting that the need to adopt dialogue became necessary because the interest of the students should always be put first.

According to him, “We should always put the interest of the students first and do all things necessary to ensure that they are not left idle even for a minute.”

“It is said that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop and it is possible that students not in school may become vulnerable to anti social thoughts and actions.”

The vice-chancellor explained that there was a difference between truth and reality, “we should seek and pursue the truth and be realistic in such pursuits. It is my hope that it shall be victory at last for all the parties involved in the current challenges facing many Nigerian universities.”

Ambali assured Nigerians and even beyond that the graduating students were well behaved and that he would continue to be proud of them for making excellence their watchword and shunning cultism and all other anti-social behaviour that are found elsewhere.

Delta, Bayelsa Governors Slam ASUU Over Strike

Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan and his Bayelsa State counterpart, Seriake Dickson, has berated the the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) for the continued strike by the union.

The governors said this at the N25 billion fundraising for the Edwin Clark University of Technology (ECUT).

Also speaking at the event, former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon and elder statesman, Edwin Clark, restated the need for dialogue in resolving the crisis facing Nigeria as a nation.

Speaking at the fundraising, Uduaghan wondered how the state universities should join in the strike by federal universities, saying, “those of us in the states are wondering how this strike in the federal universities concerns the state universities.

“We are appealing to ASUU to call off this strike and henceforth in Delta State, we shall apply the no-work-no-pay rules, as far as this ASUU strike is concerned.”

Dickson, on his part wondered how ASUU should be on strike for an upward of four months, which he said is almost a semester. This, he said, is quite unbecoming, as Nigeria cannot be considered to be a serious nation with the tertiary education almost grounded.

He therefore called on ASUU to call off the strike, saying, “enough is enough, call off the strike in the interest of the nation”.

At the event where Gowon was chairman, and had the likes of President Jonathan, Arthur Eze and Jim Ovia, and American Civil Right activist, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Uduaghan and Dickson with the Ministers of Petroleum, Women Affairs, Health and Special Duties in attendance, Over N910 million was realised.

ASUU Strike Will Be Over ‘In A Few Months

  • Nigerian students were yesterday assured by the Federal Government that the protracted strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, would be over in a few months.

    Minister of Education, Mr Nyesom Wike stated this at the anniversary lecture of National Universities Commission, NUC, in Abuja.

    Represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education, Dr. Macjohn Nwaobiala, the minister reiterated the Federal Government’s commitment to resolving the ongoing strike.

    “The Federal Government is very concerned about the state of public tertiary institutions in the country. The Federal Government is really worried about the ongoing strike of ASUU and the strike would be resolved in a few months,” Wike said.

    In his paper presentation titled, ‘Turbulent and Testing Times for Global Higher Education: Lessons for Nigeria’, Professor John Daniel said “online teaching and learning is now part of the future of most universities. Nigeria should be very good at this because without embarrassing you by pressing the point, I note that your country, through 419 scams, is a world leader in the use of the internet for less desirable purposes.”

    According to him, higher education all over the world is facing lot of challenges that included youth unemployment and the current changes in the university system.

    “These are indeed turbulent times, not only for United States of America but also for much of higher education globally,” he said.

    In his goodwill message, a former Executive Secretary of NUC, Professor Jubril Munzali, noted that the education sector has been underfunded for 21 years, with the significant increase in the funding of tertiary institutions being done over time, through the struggle of ASUU.

    He blamed the Federal Government for the lingering crisis rocking the nation’s university system.

    According to him, it is high time the Federal Government listened to its agencies and allow NUC perform its statutory role and fund universities based on the advice of its agencies like NUC.

    “Successive administrations in the country never paid adequate attention to university education,” Munzali said.

    ASUU Says Politicians Have Not Hijacked Strike

    The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Niger Delta University (NDU) chapter, says it will not allowed opposition politicians to hijack the ongoing nationwide strike by the union.

    The Chairman of university chapter of the union, Dr. Beke Sese, gave the assurance on Tuesday while speaking at a solidarity rally at the premises of the Law Faculty of the university in Yenagoa.

    The union has been on strike since July 1.

    Sese expressed the union’s displeasure over the attempt to misconstrue the objective of the strike.

    “We are aware that some opposition politicians are trying to capitalise on the current ASUU strike to cast aspersions on government and inadvertently trivialise our genuine struggle.

    “Let me state here that ASUU is not a party to such cheap manifestation of political opportunism.

    “We rather wish to implore this government to make history by commencing the process of revitalising public universities to a height never attained by any previous administration.”

    He recalled that the union had over the years, consistently engaged successive governments through dialogue, to compel the political leadership to arrest the rot in the university system.

    According to him, the leadership of ASUU has held several talks with the Federal Government over a possible peaceful resolution of the present crisis.

    “But it is quite disheartening that the government has refused to show the necessary commitment and sincerity in its self-proclaimed effort to address our demand.

    “Rather than honour an agreement it freely entered into with our union after several months of negotiation, government has resorted to arbitrary imposition of money.”

    Sese said that the purported disbursement of N100 billion to address the funding requirement of some universities was arbitrary.

    He recalled that the government had promised to stimulate the process of revitalising the university system with an initial sum of N100 billion for 2012.

    This, he said, would be built up to a yearly sum of N400 billion in the three years from 2013 to 2015 as intervention.

    “But regrettably, the said N100 billion being purportedly disbursed is, therefore, not at variance with the 2009 agreement and MoU signed with government on the 24th of January, 2012.

    “Rather, it appears to be a strategy of government aimed at dividing us.

    “By our estimation, the MoU should have fetched the universities a total sum of N500 billion by now, if government had faithfully implemented the 2012 agreement.”

    Sese said the the claim that there were no funds to implement the 2009 agreement was untenable, adding that the same government had within the last three years provided trillions of naira from public coffers as “bail outs” to support private concerns such as banks and arlines.

    The union chairman urged parents to support ASUU’s effort to compel government to “do what is right for university education”.

    He said that the union would remain determined in its effort to bring a drastic change in the university system.

    NAN reports that the solidarity rally, which was supposed to be a public rally along major roads of Yenagoa, was cut short by the Bayelsa Police Command as it refused to grant the union a rally permit. [NAN]
