CONUA, NAMDA ILLEGAL GROUPS – ASSU

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU Emmanuel Osodeke has again dismissed the registration of the Congress of University Academics, CONUA and the National Association of Medical Doctors in Academics, NAMDA saying they were inconsequential and of no effect in the Nigerian university system.

He described the presence of a certificate of recognition to both CONUA and NAMDA by the Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige as the government’s plan to silence ASUU, vowing that government would not succeed.

He said the two newly registered university academic unions were illegal and such, should not be accorded any recognition in whatever circumstance by anybody.

Reacting to the presentation of certificates to the unions to operate under the nation’s Trade Dispute Act and the Trade Union Act by the minister on Tuesday, Osodeke, who said ASUU was not aware of the development said the two unions were illegal and have no place to operate in the nation’s university system.

He wondered why the federal government was making the presentation of certificates to the newly registered unions a media affair unlike the registration of existing academic unions some years ago.

After the presentation of operational certificates to the newly registered university academic unions on Tuesday in Abuja, Ngige said the government had already written to security agencies not only to protect them but also accord them the same right accorded to other university-based unions in the country.
