ASUU strike is illegal - Federal Government

The Federal Government of Nigeria on Tuesday described the proposed industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as “unconstitutional.”

Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, Labour minister Chris Ngige narrated:

“The claims of nationwide consultations by ASUU cannot be true as the Ministry of Labour and Employment which is the chief conciliator of industrial relations disputes is yet to receive a direct petition from ASUU.

“This is against the Federal Government who is the jurisdictional employer.”
