We Don’t Believe In Strike, We Are Ready To Teach – CONUA



The newly registered Congress of Nigerian Universities Academics (CONUA) says it does not believe in strike to press home its demands from the government.

It also said it has branches in 17 universities, adding that its members will teach students if they are back to class.

National Coordinator, CONUA, Niyi Sunmonu, stated this yesterday while featuring on Channels TV’s, Sunrise Daily, monitored by our correspondent.

He said: “CONUA, as an organization, has not been on strike; there has been no time for a strike to be declared. Well, ASUU is an independent union and what it does has no bearing over other unions just like two different human beings. We’ve not been on strike and we’re not on strike.“We stopped teaching when students were asked to vacate campuses. We hope the university will open and we can go back to teaching.

“The formation of CONUA is not on the basis of strike action declared by our sister union (ASUU). We’ve not been on strike, we are ready to work if students are back on campuses.”

The government had on Tuesday registered the CONUA and the National Association of Medical and Dental Academics (NAMDA)
