The Academic Staff Union of Universities, University of Jos Chapter has said the planned meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan on the 4th, November, 2013, and the leaders of the Union should be based on previous agreements that would benefit the educational system saying anything contrary will amount to an imposition.
This was contained in a press statement igned by the Chairperson of the Chapter, Dr David Jangkam and Secretary, Dr N. Wannang and made available to African Examiner in Jos.
It reads, “ASUU University of Jos is not averse to the planned meeting with the President, in so far as the meeting will be a dialogue leading to a mutually acceptable, fair and far reaching solution based upon the implementation of the 2009 Agreement, Memorandum of Understanding of 2012 and the recommendation of the NEEDS Assessment Report.
“Anything contrary or not based on a clear acceptance of the framework for implementing the 2009 agreement, Memorandum of Understanding and NEEDS Assessment Report will instead amount to an imposition which will not be a solution to the present crisis. It warned.
Adding that, “The documents in question are well thought out and cannot be jettisoned under any guised.
The Union called on President Jonathan to be guided by the principles of honouring, “agrrement, justice and industrial harmony”, in resolving the impasse rather than “the high handedness.”
