The Nigeria Labour Congress, (NLC) on Tuesday in Lokoja held a protest over the prolonged strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, (ASUU).

Members of the NLC who held a solidarity walk from the Stella Obasanjo library to the Kogi State government house presented their demands to Governor Bello, demanding that the strike be called off.

The unions carried placards with different inscriptions reading, “Federal Government conclude renegotiation with JAC, SSANU, NASU”, “enough is enough get our children back to school”, “respect university autonomy, jettison IPPIS”, ” end ASUU strike now”, and many more.

The Kogi State Chairman of the NLC, Comrade Onuh Edoka, who was represented by his Vice Chairman Comrade Opaluwa Eleojo while presenting the demands of labour to Governor Yahaya Bello lamented the negative effect of the strike in the country.

The union recalled that the aggrieved lecturers in the university decided to down tools on February 14th 2022 when the Federal Government deviated from the 2009 agreement with the university lecturers.

He maintained that relevant stakeholders have decided to wade into the matter but have not yielded any positive result.

He said the continuous stay at home by university students poses a great threat to the security and unity of Nigeria as a nation.

While calling on the Kogi State Government to intervene in the dispute between ASUU and the federal government, the NLC Chairman said it was disheartening that the Buhari-led government could withhold the salaries of the striking lecturers for over five months.

He also described the decision of the present administration to keep mute over the demands of the striking lecturers as wicked and insensitive.

Responding, Governor Yahaya Bello who was represented by his Deputy, Edward Onoja said the faceoff between ASUU and the federal government is long overdue, adding that, for any nation that wants to succeed, priority must be given to education.
