In a statement signed by Mr. Ben Ugheoke, the Chairman, University of Abuja chapter of ASUU, revealed that the Federal Government has refused to have a meaningful dialogue with the union.

According to the statement :

“We have tried to dialogue with the Federal Government but they have been playing games with us; we will start with a warning strike to show them we are not jokers.

“ASUU has being trying to get the attention of the Federal Government to intervene in the academic system of universities across Nigeria but it has all been abortive.

“Consequently, ASUU will give a warning strike which will start on Oct. 2nd.

“The strike will last for one week, and if they do not give us listening ears, we will start the indefinite strike in November”

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) through its Lagos Zone Coordinator, Prof. Olusoji Sowande at a news conference in Lagos on Tuesday, had threatened to embark on a nationwide strike in respect to its demands for the implementation of its 2009 agreement with theFederal Government. Olusoji said the 2009 FG/ASUU agreement, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on funding of state universities, and a host of other agreement and promises were still being ignored and so therefore they will go on strike if these needs are not meet. 

He said:

“The review of the agreement should have been undertaken in 2012 and 2015 but that did not happen. “The implication is that our union has shown enough patriotism  and understanding on these matters in the last four years.

“We are perplexed and disappointed that both the Federal and State Governments are not responding to our consistent appeals to bring about genuine transformation in the education sector, ‘’ he said.

He said they would rather not embark on a strike because it is the Students and ASUU members that end up suffering. Adding:

“It is unfortunate that the only language government appears to respect and listens to is that of industrial action like strike”.

To most people, that will be a dream that can never come true… But moves are being made in a Swedish city to make that possible and bring to reality the ban on homework and assignments.

Reports have it that The Left Party in the city of Hallstahammar in Sweden says kids should be able to learn everything they need during the school day, and the city council has today launched an “investigation” into the idea.
The education council at Hallstahammar will look to see if “it’s possible for Hallstahammar to become the first homework-free municipality in Sweden.”

The country is generally open to new ideas in education, but its education minister is opposed to this one. “If this proposal is passed, I will take the initiative to change school laws so that cities will not be able to butt in and affect this kind of pedagogical decision,” Jan Björklund says.
