The Federal Government on Monday, December 10 by 4 pm will again meet with the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU), over the ongoing nationwide strike. Chris Ngige who’s the current minister of Labor and Employment disclosed this in a statement signed by the director of the press in the Ministry, Samuel Olowookere, in Abuja.
The minister also condemned a statement accredited to a lawyer, Femi Falana, who was alleged to have described the enforcement of section 43:1 of the Trade Dispute Act 2004 on the’’ No Work No Pay’’ on ASUU as illegal.
According to the Minister, the law of ‘’No Work, No Pay,’’ was a fundamental axiom in labour and industrial relations all over the world.
The earlier meeting between the FG and ASUU ended without any decision. We hope this next meeting will be positive towards ending the strike.
