UNN ASUU, residents urge FG to prevent another strike
By Gistflash News
July 26, 2021
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) chapter, has advised the Federal Government to take steps to avert another nationwide strike by the union.
The UNN chapter Chairman, Dr Christian Opata, gave the advice on Monday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Nsukka.
Opata spoke against the backdrop of the recent threat by ASUU to resume the strike suspended on Dec. 24, 2020.
He described federal government’s failure to fulfill agreements entered with the union since 2009 as unfortunate.
He said that federal government would not be exonerated “if the union resumes another strike because of its inability to fulfill an agreement with it”.
The ASUU boss said the UNN chapter of the union was ready to enforce any directive of the national leadership of ASUU at any point in time.
In a similar vein, some residents of the university town also charged the federal government to redeem its agreement with the union to forestall the strike.
A community leader, Mr Innocent Ugwu, said the strike would cause another academic setback for students in public universities, should government allow ASUU to make good its threat.
Ugwu said, “Government should act fast and do everything within its capacity to redeem the agreement it entered with ASUU that led to the suspension of the strike on Dec. 24, 2020.
“This will prevent another strike that will paralyse academic activities in public universities in the country.”
He pleaded with ASUU to avoid another strike and continue to dialogue with government in the interest of students and parents, who were always on the receiving end.
Also, a secondary school teacher, Mrs Amaka Ezema, urged government at all levels to give education special attention.
According to Ezema, the quality of education determines the level of development.
“If government gives special attention to education, there will not be room for strike in public schools.
“Federal government should ensure that ASUU’s current threat to resume strike does not happen by fulfilling the agreement signed with the union in December 2020.
“If ASUU resumes another strike, the academic timetable in public universities will be disrupted again,” Ezema said.
A civil servant, Mr Desmond Ubah, said that incessant strikes in public universities led to the hike in school fees in private universities.
“Private universities are capitalising on incessant strikes in public institutions to increase their school fees arbitrarily.
“These universities know that parents are no longer comfortable with the incessant strikes in public universities since they are no longer sure of when their children will graduate,” Ubah said.

Gen. Babagana Monguno and Director-General of National Intelligence Agency, Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the GPE 2021 to 2025 will be a key moment for the global community to come together and support quality education for all children.
A centrepiece of the summit will be the opportunity for leaders to make five-year pledges to support GPE’s work to help transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories.
The GPE will take place on July 28 and July 29, 2021.
National Library boss highlights gains of ISBN online registration
By Gistflash News
July 22, 2021
The Chief Executive Officer, National Library of Nigeria (NLN), Prof. Lenrie Aina, has advised publishers to embrace online registration of the International Standard Book Number (ISBN).
Aina made the call on Thursday in Enugu, while addressing participants at a workshop for publishers from Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu.
He said the two-day workshop was designed to train and guide publishers on how to obtain ISBN online.
According to him, it is an innovation by NLN to make the process of obtaining the number less cumbersome and stressful.
“We want to use the event to reawaken their consciousness.
“We also want to refresh their memories on the advantages of compliance with legal deposits obligations, observance of the international standards for publishing and the disadvantages of non-compliance,” Aina said.
He further said a review of the handbook on legal deposit and publishing standards would highlight the key point presented as information to publishers and authors.
Also, the Head of Enugu branch of NLN, Mrs Rachael Nebo, said the workshop was organised to sensitise publishers, authors, researchers, librarians and other stakeholders on best international standards.
Nebo described this year’s event as unique with the National Library going digital.
“As the world has gone digital, we are joining on what is happening so that it can be easier for the publishers to obtain ISBN from the comfort of their homes.
“We also gather here to discuss issues relating to adherence to publishing standard aimed at preserving the cultural heritage of the nation,” she said.
Nebo said the workshop had been rewarding since it was introduced in Enugu in 2017, considering the increase in ISBN registration.
She said the 2021 NLN workshop, which started in Katsina State, had taken place in six zones with their catchment states.
“We have eight zones mapped out for this sensitisation and participants are drawn from them.
“They will be taught and trained on the use of the newly deployed ISNB Processing App,” she further said.
In a goodwill message, the National President, Nigeria Publishers Association, Mr Uchenna Anioke, advised that the registration be made both manual and online.
According to him, the adoption of dual application is necessary due to the nature of the internet network in the country.
“Banks, for example, sometimes will tell you there is no network or you experience situations where the ATM does not work.
“We do not want publishers to experience the same old stress trying to register online,” he said.
He commended NLN for organising the programme and urged the participants to take the lectures seriously.
A publisher, Mr Kenneth Chukwu, said the online application would be beneficial to them and thanked the Chief Librarian and NLN for the initiative.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that day one of the workshop dwelt on a review of legal deposit handbook, while day two was a demonstration of the online ISBN application.
