Strike: ASUU Demands Withdrawal Of Minister’s Certificate
The Academic Staff Union of Universities has written to the University of Jos, demanding a probe and withdrawal of the doctorate degree of the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba
The Minister disclosed this recent development during an interview with Punch.
“ASUU wrote UNIJOS to recall my certificate. I am not sure what it is they are pursuing. I was informed by the university that this was the directive from ASUU: to investigate my certificate. That is how far they have gone.
When I got the letter from the university, in fact, the university didn’t hide it, they noted that ASUU wrote them.”
Recall that ASUU commenced a warning strike on February 14, 2022
over the failure of the Federal government to meet their demands which include university autonomy, the release of revitalization funds for Nigerian universities, and the deployment of the University Transparency Accountability and Solution payment platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers among others.
