We won’t be subjected to blackmail, ASUU replies Buhari

THE leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities says it would not be subjected to blackmail by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige.

The National President of the union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, stated this today during a media briefing with journalists in Abuja.

Recall that the union embarked on a strike on Monday, February 14, 2022.

Recall that President Buhari had earlier mandated the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, alongside his counterparts to end the lingering strike.

Speaking in Abuja, Osodeke said, “We will not be subjected to the blackmail of the minister of labour. Ngige has continued to blackmail us by churning out lies.

“They stopped our salaries thinking they will make us go back to work. Let them sit down as directed by the president”.
