The Nigeria labor congress president, Comrade Abdulwaheed Umar says a situation where academic activities are paralyzed
for about three months in the country is unacceptable even as the congress vows to intervene in the face off between ASUU
and the federal government.
Comrade Abdulwaheed Umar, however gave the assurance that NLC will do everything possible for ASUU and Federal
Government to go back to the negotiating table.
“Congress resolved at the meeting that we are also going to make consultations to ensure that the negotiations resume
immediately. We want to ensure that they are resumed to resolve the issues, not to resume and continue to dangle
around without making any headway. We are also going to study the situation and make some proposals.” Comrade Umar
He lamented that “it is a very serious situation we are facing today, that we allow the lecturers to remain on strike for
upward of two months without resolving the issues. I think it is a very serious issue.”
The NLC president also called on the Senate to reverse its decision to remove the minimum wage from the concurrent list
stressing that it will affect Nigerian economy even as he assured that that NLC and TUC will make sure that the Senate
reverses its decision.
