Strike: ASUU accuses Ngige of insulting lecturers, spreading fake news

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has accused the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, of insulting lecturers and spreading fake news on the ongoing industrial action by University teachers.

ASUU president, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, stated this on Thursday while appearing on a Channels Television programme, ‘Sunrise Daily’ on Thursday.

He said that Ngige has resorted to fake news having failed to force striking ASUU members to call off the strike by withholding their salaries for five months.

The ASUU President was reacting to the recent statement by Ngige, who said there was no collective bargaining agreement between government and ASUU waiting for a presidential assent.

Osodeke said, “What the Minister of Labour has done is a complete insult to the character of people like Professor Nimi Briggs, Senator Chris Adighije, and Professor Olu Obafemi.

“The minister instead of looking for how to resolve the problem is busy abusing his colleagues, abusing even the Minister of Education.”
