The Federal Government has said it is not correct for the Academic Staff Union of Universities to accuse it of failing to implement the agreement it signed with the union.
It said there was a process through which decisions on such issues were taken and that process had not been followed through as far as the agreement being referred to by ASUU was concerned.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who disclosed this in an interview with one of our correspondents while reacting to the fresh ultimatum recently issued by ASUU, accused the union of causing panic.
The minister accused the union of always issuing strike threats to cause panic among the populace.
He said, “They just brandish these strike threats and cause panic among members of the public, which is not fair.
“The thing has a route. Babalakin was negotiating it before he was removed and the committee re-constituted with a new chairman.
“The committee has been working. People came into that committee as members and some others to observe. My ministry’s people are there to observe.”
When Oshodeke was contacted on the allegations made against ASUU by Ngige, he declined making further comments.
“I don’t want to respond to Ngige through the press. When I see him one on one, I will raise the issue with him. More so, I spoke with him at length yesterday (Sunday),” the ASUU President stated. ,,
