T he minister for labor and employment Chris Ngige has criticized the education ministry over the persistence of the nationwide industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
”I cannot go to the Education Minister and dictate to him how to run his place. But I told ASUU that you should be bombarding them at the Federal Ministry of Education for this to be moved forward. There are many ways to do so,” he said in a recent report.
According to Ngige, if you go to the labour act there is something called picketing. You can picket, strike is an ultimate thing.
“Picketing means that you can stay at the corridor, clapping or singing. Workers are permitted to do so. But every time there is a disagreement, it is strike.”
