Nigeria has commenced the process of deregistering the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), following the official registration of  the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA), a breakaway faction of ASUU.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige is expected to issue a Certificate of Registration to the new union today.

An insider said that the move by the government is part of processes to deregister ASUU, with a view to checkmating its incessant industrial action that have grounded public universities in the last 7 months.

“The Minister, on behalf of the federal government will today present Certificate of Registration to the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA). With that, ASUU may cease to exist again in our universities,” the source said.

Due to its alleged failure to submit audited reports as required by law in the past five year, the government in September, threatened to withdraw registration of ASUU as a trade union

ASUU is said to have received a query by the Registrar of Trade Unions requesting the union to explain why its certificate of registration should not be withdrawn after continuously running foul of the law.

Led by its National Coordinator, ‘Niyi Sunmonu, CONUA is said to currently have membership in at least 12 Universities in Nigeria
