  1. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to stop relying on imported COVID-19 vaccines. The body advised the federal government to encourage universities and research institutes to find treatment. Dipo Akomolafe, ASUU Chairman, Olusegun Agagu University of Science and Technology (OAUSTECH) spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday. “If our universities and research institutes are mobilised and encouraged by the Federal Government, they will find a solution to the scourge of coronavirus,” he said. The union leader stressed that the closure of schools to curb COVID-19 spread was not the solution. He told the authorities to ensure provisions of facilities in schools to enable them function safely. “From the presentation of the government so far, most deaths recorded were from the ages of 60 above and the range of youths was not much. The closure of schools over COVID-19 is not the option,” he added.
  2. The University of Ibadan Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has directed its members to boycott the upcoming convocation of the institution. The decision is believed to be connected with the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Union for more than six months. The Union made this known in a release signed by the Chairman, Professor Ayo Akinwole. The union stated that the position of the Union is that holding convocation ceremonies is a violation of the principle of the ongoing strike. Akinwole maintained that the Union is constrained to “advise members not to be in attendance or participate in the preparation for and the actualization of the said convocation and 72nd Foundation Day Ceremonies.”
  3. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has pointed out why it won’t call off the industrial action embarked upon by its members since March. The Calabar zone of the union expressed that its members will not go back to the classes on empty stomachs, insisting that the federal government meets the union’s demands. The union expressed that the industrial action would continue as long as the government insists on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS). The Coordinator of the Calabar Zone of ASUU, Dr. Aniekan Brown made this known while addressing newsmen in Calabar on Monday, describing IPPIS as a cesspool of corruption. He also dismissed claims by the Government that 71,000 ASUU members had already accepted to register with the IPPIS. He went on to describe the claim as incorrect, pointing out that such was a distraction to the academic body.
  4. With the reopening of schools in some states in the country, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has come out to support the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in its negotiations with Federal Government regarding the ongoing strike. NANS President Danielson Akpan came out to reveal the union’s stand while speaking with TheNation. According to NANS President, ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike because of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) issue, and failure of the government to fulfil other agreements reached with ASUU. University students have been at home for over 5months due to the industrial action by the academic staff and the decision of the National Universities Commission (NUC) to shut down all schools over the coronavirus pandemic.
  5. The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it was still unsafe for the nation’s public universities to reopen for academic activities. The union also expressed that its industrial action which it commenced since March nationwide is still on and will only be called off when demands are addressed by the government. The Lagos Zone coordinator of the union, Professor Olusiji Sowande, gave this position in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday. According to him, there is nothing different on the ground from what used to be before COVID-19 in the nation’s public universities. He also expressed that students’ hostels are not only still inadequate, there are no significant facilities on the ground to carry out the physical distancing guidelines in large and crowded lecture rooms.
  6. The Congress of University Academics (CONUA), has revealed that its members were ready to resume work after months of being at home due to COVID-19. Dr Niyi Sunmonu, the National Coordinator of the union made this known in a statement he issued after its National Executive Council meeting in Lagos on Saturday. He urged the Federal Government to reopen universities and put in place infrastructure and COVID-19 protocols that would facilitate resumption in the institutions. CONUA is an association of lecturers from five universities following cracks in the Association of Senior Staff of Universities (ASUU). The new Union was announced at the end of its stakeholders’ forum at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in October 2019. This news is coming days after the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said it was not ready to resume work until its demands were met.
  7. Nigerians on Twitter have called out the official page of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU for writing COOPERATION and CORPORATION. In the post, ASUU was asking for the cooperation of students but made a blunder by replacing it with CORPORATION. Many students were however quick to correct them, as others mocked them. The union had tweeted asking students to support them against their ‘fight’ with the Federal Government over non payment of their salaries. Some still called them out saying, if a strike holds, it automatically means their school accommodation (off campus apartment’s rent) will keep running and would they be responsible for renewing it, because it will just be locked up. Some still asked why ASUU will still want them to be home, while some of their children study overseas.
  8. ASUU The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has stated that it has no plans of ending its current strike unless its demands are met by the federal government.

He expressed that the government must first implement the report of the NEEDS assessment it conducted in 2012. Ogunyemi, went further to state that its demands were genuine and in the interest of the nation. The union leader said students would be the major beneficiaries of the demands and urged them to support the demands.
