Festus Keyamo, spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign, has claimed that the agreement reached by the Peoples Democratic Party-led administration in 2009 is the reason why ASUU is on strike.

This information was shared by Keyamo on Monday during an appearance on Trust TV’s Daily Politics.

He further mentioned that ASUU went on strike 12 times for 900 days between 1999 and 2015, when the PDP handed power to the current ruling APC.

This ASUU business you’re bringing up. Why is ASUU having issues now? As of 2009, the PDP government had already signed the deal. They committed to ASUU commitments they were unable to keep. We inherited these contracts and are currently battling to rework them.

Let’s inform Nigerians that ASUU isn’t on strike because APC signed a deal with them, since that would be a lie. “Imagine how reckless a government can be when they went into agreements with ASUU and signed conditions that they couldn’t fulfil and that’s why ASUU is on strike. This pact was officially signed by the PDP.

There will be no deflecting responsibility; the issue will be resolved. It’s estimated that ASUU went on strike 12 times between 1999 and 2015, when they ceded power to the APC. I have data that totals 900 days.

In response, Daniel Bwala, a spokesperson for the (PDP) presidential campaign, came on Trust TV with Keyamo and said that, whenever ASUU or any of the labour unions went on strike during the PDP government, there were productive discussions between the parties.

Ask Adams Oshimole, he replied, “Who was the Lord Lugard of labour unionism back then?” As a matter of fact, he was direct, forceful, and unwavering in his stance. Constructive engagement occurred during every strike, whether it was initiated by the Academic Staff Union of the University of the Philippines (ASUU) or any of the labour unions during the PDP. The current government, according to the rationale ASUU has been using during all of their strikes, “shifts the goal post” every time.
