The coordinator of lead network, Chukwuma Okenwa, says the issues between the federal government and the academic staff union of universities, ASUU, has continued to linger around because it was not resolved on a round table of dialogue, as ASUU was forced back into the classroom by the court.

Okenwa, who featured on Urban Radio’s Breakfast Programme, The Parliament, added that, if the strike action had continued, the government would have found a way to meet ASUU’s demands.

Also the trade union chairman of Enugu chapter, Ben Asogwa, who featured on the programme as well, expressed displeasure that a government which emphasised the need to revitalize the educational sector while vying for the political power then, could treat the issues of ASUU in the way they did.

He insisted that the government should pay members of ASUU for those months of strike action.

Adonis Udougo, who called in on the program, charged ASUU to come up with a sort of scale of preference in their demand, while also urging the federal government to be sensitive enough to the educational well-being of its citizens as it is the bedrock of human development.
