Onnit's Black Friday SaleAccording to him, the minister has shown that he is insensitive to what led him there so he should be removed, saying, “We see the minister as a stumbling block. He is our custodian; he is our intermediary between the union and Mr President. Since this government came on board, ASUU has been trying to get access to Mr. President; the minister has not allowed that communication between our union and Mr. President”
“He should be removed because you cannot stay in a place you are not doing your job. If he was very sensitive to the issues today, I don’t think this strike will have been called for. If his removal will bring prosperity to education because Nigeria is bigger than an individual in this country, we must move forward. If a minister is sitting down on his seat and sabotaging the efforts of education, I think he should be removed. He doesn’t need to be there”.
Atahiru further confirmed that the branch will join the industrial action as directed by the national headquarters of the union
He said” We in this branch had our congress today and our congress resolved today 15th November 2015, that we are to commence the strike as directed by NE and the strike is total, comprehensive.
We are withdrawing all academic services”.
On the fate of the strike if after one week, the government did not show positive response, he declared that the action would continue
He said “we have one week, two weeks, three weeks and continued negotiations.  If nothing is done after one week, we will reevaluate the situation on ground and move to the next option which is two weeks. If after two weeks nothing is done we will look at the situation and move to three weeks. If after three weeks nothing is done, we will go on full blown strike. The notice of the strike must have been served the minister because we don’t have secrets”.
