Academic Staff Union of Universities has called on the FG to resolve outstanding issues before the suspension of its 10-month strike, to guarantee peace in universities.

The union said government was indebted to many of its members in different universities, with between 3 and 14 months arrears owed.

 

ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said these in an interview with Sunday PUNCH. Asked what would happen should government remain recalcitrant, he said he would continue from where his predecessor, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, stopped.

 

“It is continuity, we run a collective leadership. So, it’s continuity from where my immediate predecessor stopped. It (the crisis) is not yet over. Government has the opportunity to ensure that crises are over. It is just to implement those things,” Osodeke said.

 

According to him, after developing the University Transparency and Accountability Solution as an alternative to the controversial Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, ASUU members are “bleeding” while people are being paid what pleases the office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

 

Osodeke said:

“You know we were on strike till late last year. We reached an agreement on how to implement the outstanding issue with the government. We will expect the government to implement those issues with timelines.

 

“They have reneged on a number of them in line with the timelines. But, we believe it is not late; they can still resolve those issues for the peace and development of our universities. They cut your salary today, they pay those who they want to pay today, they withdraw those next week; they expect those people to come to Abuja to come and beg them or look for other things for them. So, these cannot continue in a university system.

 

“As a union, we don’t love strike because we have our children here. 99% of lecturers in Nigeria have their children in Nigerian universities, unlike the politicians who are actually destroying the system. How many of them have their children in this country?”

    *The virgin birth of Christ is one of the mysteries that would continue to pose a puzzle to those who want to understand the things of God through their natural knowledge. Those who know their God do not have any difficulty in understanding that the Son of God was made flesh.*

    *That means that Jesus took on the very nature of man in order to interact with man. The Old Testament prophets foretold His incarnation as they portrayed Him as the coming Messiah who would take away the sin of the world.*

    *Christ in His earthly ministry maintained both divinity and humanity. He was God because He forgave sin and was worshipped. He was human because He felt hungry, slept and lived among mortals – What a mystery!*

    *Our Christian faith is rooted in Christ’s incarnation, priesthood and mission to redeem us. His incarnation therefore should make all Christian youths to appreciate the sacrifice of Christ to save humanity from sin because without His incarnation, He would not have been able to save humanity through a literal crucifixion on the cross.*
