NUPENG berates FG, considers solidarity strike with ASUU

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige

The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers has condemned the lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government toward finding a lasting solution to the lingering strike of the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

NUPENG also stated its desire to stage a solidarity strike with ASUU if the government fails to end the industrial action which started since February 2022.

In a statement on Monday, NUPENG President, Williams Akporeha, said the union would not hesitate to begin the industrial action, condemning the “lackadaisical attitude of the Federal Government towards finding a lasting solution to the crisis.”

He described the situation as “unfortunate and a sad commentary on the level of governance and sensitivity of political leaders.”

In a related development, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Monday lampooned ASUU for not calling off the strike, saying enough is enough.
