Comrade Amanabo Josiah

The Chairman Nigeria Civil Service Union (NCSU) Comrade Amanabo Josiah has posited that the federal government of Nigeria is not sincere to Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) by reneging on earlier agreement reached with ASUU some years ago.

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Chairman Nigeria Civil Service Union, Comrade Amanabo Josiah has posited that the federal government of Nigeria is not sincere to Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) by reneging on earlier agreement reached with ASUU some years ago.

Speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Comrade Amanabo argued that ASUU is right in embarking on the one month warning strike. He said that if the government had obeyed the agreement it reached with ASUU there would not have been the call for the strike.

He pointed out that the strike action will affect the academic calendar of Nigeria Universities thereby increasing the number of years students will spend before graduating, “Some students will have to spend up to seven years for a course of five years”, he added.

He also said that the insensitivity of the government officials over the plight of Nigerian students is because most of them have their wards in foreign universities. He pointed out that it is the children of the poor and average Nigerians that suffer the effect of the strike action embarked upon by ASUU.

In as much as he knows that it is the children of the masses that are being affected by the ASUU strike, Comrade Amanabo said he and his union are in support of ASUU. This he argued will put a stop to the nonchalant attitude of the government to the plight of members of ASUU.
