The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it rejected the Federal Government’s offer because it is “miserable”.
ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, said this in a statement released yesterday and made available to newsmen titled, ‘Why ASUU rejects government’s award of salary’.
Osodeke asked the Federal Government, through the Ministry of Education, to return to the New Draft Agreement of the 2009 FGN/ASUU Renegotiation Committee whose work spanned a total of five and half years as a demonstration of good faith.
It would be recalled that last Tuesday, ASUU met with the FG through the Professor Nimi Briggs committee.
Osodeke in the statement explained that the government imposed the ongoing strike action on ASUU, saying FG had encouraged it to linger because of its provocative indifference.
