ASUU Strike: SERAP threatens lawsuit against Buhari over violation of child right

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has threatened to sue President Buhari over the prolonged strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Recall that the union commenced a warning strike on February 14 over failure of the federal government to meet its demands and implement some agreements the two parties entered into previously.

ASUU’s demands include the funding of the revitalisation of public universities, the Earned Academic Allowances, the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) and promotion arrears.

Others are the renegotiation of 2009 ASUU-FG Agreement and the inconsistency in Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System.

Speaking on the development, The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, said it will take a legal action against President Muhammadu Buhari over the lingering strike.

Reacting to the impasse between the government and lecturers, SERAP said: “BREAKING: The ASUU strike which has kept poor children at home while the children of Nigeria’s politicians attend private schools, is a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

“We’re suing the Buhari administration over its violation of poor children’s rights to education and equal protection.”

SERAP said this on its verified Twitter handle @SERAPNigeria Today.
