Amid the ongoing 10-month old strike undertaken by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the federal government has commenced the process of registering a rival union.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige disclosed this when the leadership of Congress of University Academics (CONUA) led by its National Coordinator, Niyi Sunmonu, paid him a courtesy visit on Thursday November 19.

Ngige said;

“We are receiving you in audience formally today in this ministry. We have the right to receive associations of persons that are workers, whether we have registered them or not, just as you have the right to apply for registration which is the lawful thing to do.

“We have the right to receive and hold meetings with you. The journey to have you registered has just started.

“You have done the right thing by applying and this ministry has also done the right thing by processing your registration.

“The review of your application for registration is ongoing. I have put up a committee to look into that review. I will ask the committee to wind up its work.

“We are giving them four weeks from today to turn in their report to the ministry.

“Part of our job here is to register unions; it is also part of our job to make sure that unions that are not functional are helped.”

Ngige also commended the university lecturers for initiating the process to register the union.
