ASUU: FG Sets Up Joint Committee To Address SSANU/NASU payment issues

The Nigerian Government has announced that it has set up a Joint Committee to investigate concerns related to the issues raised by the Senior Staff Association Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU) overpayment anomalies.

The FG disclosed this in a statement after the Minister for Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige led a meeting between the Federal Government and members of the Senior Staff Association Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU).

The Minister added that the  Joint Committee would be made up of the unions and members of the government side, which would work in harmony to ensure that those anomalies in payment complaints by the unions were treated to the satisfaction of concerned parties.

“The government side responded to issues on Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) and what is being done to assist the University non-academic workers, who have had some complaints in that direction in terms of some of the allowances they said were chopped off by the IPPIS system,” Ngige said.

He added that the FG launched a bigger committee to formalise the allowances that had been granted to all the unions in the University system – academic and non-academic, citing the need for uniformity in the earned allowances in the University system.

“We just want to confirm that we are favorably disposed to dialogue and after discussing with our members, we will definitely come back and we will go on with the discussion” General Secretary, NASU, Peter Adeyemi said.

According to a statement signed by the spokesperson for the US Department of States, Ned Price, this disclosure was made by the new US Secretary of State, Antony J. Blinken, during a phone call conversation with Nigeria’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, on Monday, March 1, 2021.

He also acknowledged the threats that violent extremists posed to Nigeria and regional security as a whole.

The statement said that as part of efforts to ensure a good relationship with Nigeria, Blinken referred to President Biden’s revocation of immigrant visa restrictions on Nigeria as an affirmation of the close ties between Americans and Nigerians.

He also reiterated the support of the United States for Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala as the new Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

He said, “Very glad to re-engage, through a very nice phone call with US Secretary of State, Secretary Blinken. We covered a broad range of bilateral and multilateral issues and look forward to increased cooperation.”

On his part, Secretary Blinken said, “Delighted to speak with Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyema. We deeply value our bilateral relationship with Nigeria and look forward to rejuvenating our partnership based on shared values of democracy, respect for human rights, and robust people-to-people relations.”

What this means

This appears to be a renewed partnership and bilateral relationship between the United States and Nigeria, which seemed to have suffered some setbacks during the Trump administration.

This was clearly evident in visa restrictions on Nigeria and the refusal of the last US administration to support the confirmation of Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the Director-General of the WTO despite the unanimous support of member states.
