The latest report reaching us has it that the Federal Government in an attempt to stop the Asuu strike, they went ahead to bribe some members of the Union.
The Leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities has accused the Federal Government of taking money round campuses to influence some lecturers to abandon the almost 5 months old strike embarked upon by ASUU.

While on a TV programme, Mr. Karo Ogbinaka, the Chairman of the University of Lagos chapter of ASUU, said the unionist was aware that some agents of the FG have been going round the campuses to influence lecturers to abandon the strike and resume academic activities.

Mr. Ogbinaka said and I quote: “Federal Government is just changing its tactics by bribing members to break the strike. That won’t resolve the issue. Rather than address the issue, they are attempting to break the strike,”.

While still on TV, Mr. Ogbinaka said that the move by FG to break the ranks of the lecturers by influencing them with money will fail and this will make the strike to continue for a loner period of time.
The members of UNILAG ASUU chapter also blasted the federal govt for allegedly sponsoring market women to protest against the striking lecturers. Mr. Karo Ogbinaka, said the move will ultimately fail because the lecturers are resolute.

Also it is worth knowing that the congress meeting scheduled by the union at UNILAG for December 2, 2013, was postponed to 3rd December, 2013 (Today).
