The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has said it does not bother over the registration of two new unions by the government for academic staff in the university system.
The National President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, while reacting to the registration of the two new unions said: “that does not in any way affect us. We are a disciplined and focused union and we know what we are doing and what we are after. Let them register as many unions as they like. That is inconsequential as far as we are concerned.
“We are not also in any way threatened. The sky is big enough for birds to fly.
“We know our members, we know our strength and we also know what our vision and mission are. Our members are not saboteurs or bootlickers . “Our struggle is for a better educational system in the country. If the system is good, all of us will benefit and it is not only ASUU members’ children and wards that are going to benefit from improved funding and the provision of better facilities in our institutions.”
