The Federal Government of Nigeria in an attempt to clip the wings of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), will on Tuesday present a certificate of registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a breakaway faction of ASUU.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, is to present a Certificate of Registration to a breakaway group of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
This was contained in an invitation sent to reporters on Tuesday by the Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Oshundun Olajide.
CONUA, a breakaway faction of ASUU with a presence in a few federal universities, is led by its National Coordinator, ‘Niyi Sunmonu, a lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.
The Congress of Nigerian University Academics, CONUA, broke away from ASUU in 2018 after some disagreements two years earlier.
The ASUU rival group has been mounting pressure on the federal government to register it, in the belief that it already met all the conditions for registration.
CONUA believes the strike is not the only way out to resolve disputes
