BREAKING: ASUU Vows To Resume Strike After What FG Did To Its Members

ASUU has vowed to resume strike after what the Federal Government did to its members.

News ToGo reports that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has been having a face off with the federal government over some issues. Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, National President of the ASUU has declared that if the Nigerian government does not pay their withheld eight-month salaries, university lecturers will go on strike again.

He stated that the new strike would be a protest against the government’s ‘No-work, No-pay’ policy. ASUU suspended its eight-month-old strike after a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja in October.

The union embarked on strike to demand improved welfare for workers and funding for universities, among other issues. There were several meetings between the ASUU leadership and the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige who represented the federal government. But after what he described as “failed negotiations,” the government filed a suit against ASUU at the National Industrial Court.

In its ruling on September 21, the National Industrial Court granted the motion on notice filed by the Nigerian government and ordered ASUU to end the strike and return to the classroom immediately.

The trial judge, Justice Polycarp Hamman, while ruling on the interlocutory injunction, restrained ASUU from continuing with the strike pending the determination of the suit filed against the union by the Nigerian government.

But ASUU appealed the judgment at the Court of Appeal where it also filed a stay of execution of the ruling of the NIC.

However, the Court of Appeal upheld the ruling of the lower court and ordered the striking lecturers to “immediately” call off the strike and resume work with immediate effect. Despite complying with the court order, the government paid the lecturers half of their salaries for October. That is why ASUU is angry and vowing to go on strike again. Osodeke stated that the federal government failed to keep its promise.

He further said, Osodeke also expressed satisfaction with the response of ASUU members to the series of demonstrations by chapters of the union over the half-salaries paid to them in October.

“We are going to hold our National Executive Council meeting to appraise the situation and look at reports from the branches.

“It was NEC that mandated the branches to embark on the protests. Whatever is going to be the next line of action, we are going to decide at the NEC meeting,” he added.

JUST IN: TB Joshua's Emmanuel TV Channel Removed

YouTube has removed the primary channel associated with the late founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua—Emmanuel TV.

News ToGo reports that the channel, which broadcasts the religious activities of the church, was taken down following allegations against the late preacher. This action comes after the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) aired controversial documentary reports about allegations of torture and rape linked to TB Joshua.

The termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel on YouTube is a response to the platform’s policies against hate speech, cyberbullying, and harassment, particularly targeting survivors of sexual violence. The move follows openDemocracy’s report on more than 50 abusive videos amplifying attacks against Joshua’s accusers.

The documentary by BBC World Service, in collaboration with openDemocracy, featured whistleblowers who made on-the-record allegations of sexual and psychological torture, financial fraud, and criminal negligence by Joshua. In a disturbing backlash, YouTube accounts promoting SCOAN shared archival video footage depicting experiences of these abuse survivors, leading to the termination of Emmanuel TV’s channel.

On Friday, January 5, the Lagos state government carried out the confiscation of goods displayed by traders along the highway.

News ToGo reports that a video circulated online captured the traders pleading for leniency as their merchandise was being seized.

Sharing the video on social media, the state Commissioner of Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, emphasized the need for enforcement without sentiment. He highlighted previous warnings to traders against displaying or selling items on walkways, setbacks, or main roads, as such practices deface the city and pose safety concerns for the public.

Wahab stated, ”We cannot be emotional about enforcement. We have severally warned that traders should desist from displaying or selling things on the walkway, setbacks, or main road. It defaces the city and majorly for people’s safety.

Early Friday, Special operatives of KAI/LAGESC again dislodged street traders operating on Agege Motor road, Old Secretariat GRA Ikeja, Awolowo way, Alausa Secretariat, Agidingbi Jakande road inward LTV 8, Ojodu Berger, Fagba road.”
