School teachers: ‘Resolve ASUU strike now’

03 September 2013, 14:25

Abuja - Primary school head teachers have asked the federal government and the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resolve their differences for the sake of Nigerian students, Nigerian Tribune reports.

The Association of Primary School Head Teachers of Nigeria (AOPSHON) issued a statement slamming the prolonged strike by university lecturers at the conclusion of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.

Signed by its national president, Lawal Mahmud, and the national secretary, Oluwole Adeola, the statement said the “NEC-in-session was unhappy about the long delay in the resolution of ASUU strike which is gradually paralysing the university system (sic).”

The statement also condemned the slow implementation of the demanded wage increases.

“NEC-in-session took comprehensive reports from the states of the federation on the implementation of the new minimum wage and 27.5 per cent teachers’ peculiar allowance (sic),” the statement read.

“NEC was not happy at the ugly development of non-implementation of the agreement, which would not encourage teachers in the affected states to work conscientiously (sic).”

The statement also recommended a swift implementation of the promised resolutions.

“NEC, therefore, recommends strict implementation with immediate effect.”
