The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has threatened to query universities that have failed to comply with its decision to remain on strike while negotiations with the Federal Government continue.

ASUU President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Abuja.

ASUU had been on strike for the past five months to press home its demands.

The striking lecturers’ demands include, funding for the revitalisation of public universities, Earned Academic Allowances, University Transparency Accountability Solution, UTAS, and promotion arrears.

Others are the renegotiation of 2009 ASUU-FG Agreement and the inconsistency in Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System, IPPIS.

Since the union embarked on strike, few of its members have pulled out of the ongoing strike to resume their academic activities.

According to Mr Osodeke, the union will punish those who have pulled out from our ongoing strike the appropriate way.

“We will ensure to query them and we will follow it up the appropriate way. We have even queried some of them in accordance with the union,’’ he said.

Mr Osodeke also noted that since the last Tripartite Plus meeting called by the Chief of Staff to the President on the ongoing industrial action over a month ago, there has been no other meeting.

“We have not been called for any other meeting since that time and government did not offer us anything, they just ask us to meeting with the committee that was all.

He also said that the union will be meeting with government within the week.
