Ngige knocks ASUU for uncooperative attitude

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has complained about the ‘uncooperative and anti-labor’ attitude of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

He regretted that the current ASUU strike had been prolonged because the university teachers had made negotiation difficult.

The minister spoke yesterday on a live interview program on SilverBird Television.

In a statement by the Acting Head of Press and Public Relations, Patience Onuobia, Ngige said his children were affected by the current ASUU strike.

He said the role of the minister of Labour is to conciliate disputes and does not include the implementation of agreements so reached with parties.

He also dismissed talks that he was responsible for the ongoing action by the union.
