FG Begins Process Of Deregistering ASUU

The process of deregistering the Academic Staff Union of Universities has been started by the federal government (ASUU).


According to information obtained by Daily Trust, the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a split off from ASUU, has been formally recognized as a trade union.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, will give a Certificate of Registration to the new union before today expires, a source at the ministry revealed to our correspondent on Tuesday.


The official said that the government’s action is a part of efforts to deregister ASUU in order to stop the organization’s ongoing strikes that have closed public colleges for the past seven months.

Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA) will receive a Certificate of Registration from the Minister today on behalf of the federal government. The source warned that if such happens, ASUU may once more vanish from our universities.

According to the Daily Trust, the government had threatened to revoke ASUU’s trade union license in September because it had allegedly failed to submit its audited reports as required by law for the previous five years.


The organization apparently received a letter from the Registrar of Trade Unions asking it to provide justification for not having its registration certificate revoked for breaking the law.
