Federal Government Of Nigeria Begins Process To Deregister ASUU

The  Federal Government of Nigeria has began the process of deregistering the Academic Staff Union Universities [ASUU].

This is as the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a breakaway faction of ASUU, has been officially registered as a trade union.

A source in the Ministry of Labour and Employment told Daily Trust on Tuesday that the its principal, Chris Ngige, will present a Certificate of Registration to the new union before today runs out.

The official explained that the move by the government is part of processes to deregister ASUU, with a view to checkmating its incessant strikes that have grounded public universities in the last 7 months

On behalf of the federal government the Minister will  today  present  Certificate of Registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA). With that, ASUU may cease to exist again in our universities,” the source said.

If remembered ,Nigerian Government in September threatened to withdraw registration of ASUU as a trade union over its alleged failure to submit its audited reports as required by law in the past five year.

The Registrar of Trade Unions reportedly wrote a query to the union on why its certificate of registration should not be withdrawn.
