Protest: Honour Your Agreement With ASUU – Governor Ortom Tells FG
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom spoke on Tuesday during a protest organized by Nigeria Labour Congress in solidarity with ASUU.

“I wish to commend the NLC for embarking on the solidarity protest. For over five months, our children have been home and since the federal government is not doing anything about it, Benue State Government is fully in support of your action and we will communicate to Federal Government.
FG Must Implement First Before We Return To Class – ASUU Insists
Naijacrawl reports that ASUU said the Federal government is not sincere in the management of the crisis that has lasted for five months.
The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, also stated that ASUU is right in its resilience to save the education sector.
Chairman of ASUU, University of Calabar Chapter, John Edoh said” it was inexplicable that the entire tertiary education system was shut down from Feb. 14 till today July 26 and the government has done nothing.”
John Edo who stated this in Calabar at the NLC solidarity protest said ASUU has several agreements and memoranda with the government which has not been implemented.
Edoh said, “This time is a time of implementation, the Federal Government must implement first before we return to the classrooms.”
Edo who also spoke on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS, said, “IPPIS was not congenial with university modus-operandi.
“ASUU developed the University Transparency and Accountability Solution UTAS which was tested and it passed for the Federal Government to pay the emoluments of University staff but the government has refused to use it.
“We are not imposing on the government how to be paid, it is a collective bargaining process, we are saying that IPPIS lacks the ability to capture the peculiarity of the university system.
