The Federal Government says it will present a certificate of registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a separate body of academic unions.
CONUA, with a presence in a few federal universities, is led by its National Coordinator, ‘Niyi Sunmonu, a lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife.
The certificate will be presented by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, at the Hon. Minister Conference Room, Federal Secretariat, Phase 1, Abuja on Tuesday, according to an invitation sent to reporters on Tuesday by the Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, Oshundun Olajide.
The message by the Ministry of Labour read, “The Honorable Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige cordially invites you to the recognition and presentation of Certificate of Registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics”
It added, “Your media organisation is invited to cover the event and strictly by invitation.”
Recall that ASUU has been on strike since February 14 to press home its demands.
The National Industrial Court on Sept 21, 2022 ordered the university to return to work.
Last week, ASUU filed an appeal through its lawyers against the court ruling.
