Our Union won't end it's Strike Based on Your Lies - ASUU tells FG

Professor Ayoola Akinwole, who is currently the The chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Ibadan, has said that the strike will not just end based on the lies by the Federal Government that the 7-month strike has come to an end.

Recall that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, announced that the ASUU strike have come to an end after the union met with the Federal Government.

However, the chairman noted that until the Federal Government addressed their demands, the strike would not be suspended and the lies being told by FG would only worsen the situation.

In the statement which Prof. Ayoola Akinwole released yesterday, October 4  2020, it reads;

As of today, October 4, 2020, ASUU members are being owed three months salaries. In some universities like MOAU and UNIMAID our members have not received salary for up to six months.
The Federal Government, through the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, has criminally withheld five months’ (February to June, 2020) check-off deducted from our members’ salaries without remittance to the union.
Our ongoing total, comprehensive and indefinite strike action will continue if this propaganda and lies against ASUU by appointees and representatives of the Federal Government like the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, persists.
