ASUU President debate new Strike

ASUU President debate new Strike

The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Dr. Nasir Fagge in frustration disclosed that they are yet to receive allocations which were agreed upon last year by the union and the Federal Government to end the five month old strike.  According to him, the Minister for Education, Nyesom Wike, was made the head and advocate of the implementation committee to meet with the union regularly for discussions, but has never been available due to his busy schedules.We have also asked that another person who is less busy be made available to us, but the government is yet to do that, he said.

“The minister has been busy all this while and now he has traveled again. We had requested that someone who is less busy be given to us so that we can have regular meetings but it has not been the case."

"We hope that when the minister returns from his latest trip, our 2013 allocation out of the N200 billion for the revitalisation of our universities will be disbursed."

"Part of our agreement also was the fact that our annual allocation of N220 billion will be made available on a quarterly basis. So, we expect that part of the amount for the first quarter will be disbursed as well when we finally meet”, he said.
