ERC SUPPORTS ASUU'S WARNING STRIKE OVER NON-IMPLEMENTATION OF 2009 AGREEMENT

CALLS FOR DEMOCRATIC MANAGEMENT OF UNIVERSITIES

FOR A JOINT ACTION OF EDUCATION WORKERS AND STUDENTS

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is holding a week long warning strike that started on Wednesday, November 16, over the failure of the federal government to honour its aspects of the FGN-ASUU 2009 agreement. This agreement contains a commitment of government to upwardly fund education sector and pay outstanding wages of the academic staff. The Education Rights Campaign (ERC) fully supports the consistent struggle of ASUU for the implementation of this agreement. And we hold that the failure of Buhari government to uphold the terms of this agreement shows that there is no fundamental difference between Buhari and previous regimes that have reneged on this agreement and further eroded an already rotten education system.
