The Academic Staff Union of Universities(ASUU) is now being deregistered by the federal government.
The Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a split off from ASUU, has been recognized as a legitimate labor union.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, will give a Certificate of Registration to the new union before today expires, a source at the ministry revealed to our correspondent on Tuesday.
The official said that the government’s action is a part of efforts to deregister ASUU in order to stop the organization’s ongoing strikes that have closed public colleges for the past seven months.
“Today, the Minister will submit a Certificate of Registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics on behalf of the federal government” (CONUA).
ASUU may no longer exist in our universities as a result, the source said.
