Fight your battles – ASUU tells NAAT, others

The Chairman of ASUU, University of Lagos (UNILAG) chapter, who is also a member of the National Executive Committee of the Union, Dr. Dele Ashiru has said the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) or any other union should not use it as a bait to get anything from the government, saying that NAAT or any other staff union should fight their battles their own ways.

He stated this while reacting to claims by NAAT expressing displeasure with the sharing arrangement of the N40 billion released by the Federal Government as Earned Academic Allowances for university workers.

“Who pays the Earned Academic Allowances, is it ASUU or the government? In the first instance, ASUU presented its demands to the government and we made our case and based on that, the government released some money.

“The money was not even up to what we demanded but we made the necessary concession in the interest of all.

“However, the National Universities Commission, NUC, also saw the need to carry other unions along and made the request on their behalf.

“Nobody should use ASUU as a bait to get anything from the government. We do fight our own battles and we want other unions to also fight their battles themselves,” he said.

Ashiru therefore pleaded that no union should drag ASUU to their fight or struggles.
