THE Calabar zone of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said the Federal Government has not shifted to any new ground on the dispute between it and government, saying government has not changed from mere promises.
Rising from a zonal meeting, the Calabar zone of the union noted that the “intervention by the Vice President did not significantly address the issues of the MoU of January 24th, 2014,” and appealed to Nigerians to “prevail on the government to urgently address the issues in the MoU.”
A statement by the ASUU chairman of the zone, Dr. Charles Ononuju said “it is very sad and unfortunate that Federal Government is politicizing the issues. Our struggle has nothing to do with politics. Anybody saying so is being economical with the truth.
“ASUU has never shied away from pointing out ills of the society irrespective of government in power. We call on all Nigerians to shun ethnic, religious and political sentiments and emotions.
Agreement has nothing to do with region, religion or politics. Let us join hands to save public education.”
“The zone is convinced government has not changed from mere promises as ASUU has in the last three and half years. No new ground which government can now be trusted. The intervention of by the Vice President significantly address the issues of MoU of January 24th 2012.”
