A former national welfare secretary of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU, Professor Ngozi Iloh has accused the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige of insincerity in his negotiations with the striking lecturers in a bid to end the lingering industrial action.

Speaking on the Crest Breakfast Show on Friday, Professor Iloh also accused the minister of not taking education in the country seriously, saying the negotiation process should be handed over to the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu.

She added that the union had completed its side of the negotiations and agreement but waiting for the federal government’s assent.

Professor Iloh appealed to Nigerian students to be patient noting that the ongoing strike will be beneficial to all.
