Written by on May 23, 2019

THE ACADEMIC STAFF UNION OF UNIVERSITIES HAS SAID THAT ITS MEMBERS SHOULD NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF THERE IS ANY DISRUPTION IN THE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM, AS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAD NOT SHOWN COMMITMENT TO CARRYING OUT THE 2019 MEMORANDUM OF ACTION.

THE ASUU NATIONAL PRESIDENT, PROF BIODUN OGUNYEMI, STATED THIS AT A BRIEFING IN ABUJA, TO GIVE AN UPDATE ON THE ONGOING RENEGOTIATION WITH THE GOVERNMENT AND TO CLEAR THE AIR OVER THE N25BILLION CONFIRMED BY THE MINISTER OF EDUCATION, ADAMU ADAMU, TO HAVE BEEN APPROVED FOR UNIVERSITIES.

OGUNYEMI SAID THE N25BILLION WAS MEANT TO BE A PART-PAYMENT OF THE EARNED ACADEMIC ALLOWANCES AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN RELEASED BETWEEN FEBRUARY 15 AND 28, 2019, AS AGREED. BUT THIS WAS NOT DONE.

HE CALLED ON ALL NIGERIAN PATRIOTS, PARENTS AND STUDENTS INCLUDING THE NIGERIA LABOUR CONGRESS TO PREVAIL ON THE GOVERNMENT TO KEEP TO THE TERMS OF OUR AGREEMENT.
