ASUU to FG: You must pay N50b before resumption

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Sunday insisted that the federal government must N50billion revitalisation fund for it to consider suspending its ongoing strike.

The Union also said it had lost confidence in government making empty promises which it will not keep to after agreements have been reached.

Other conditions attached to the suspension of the strike is the presentation of concrete evidences of the payment of the promised N20billion earned academic allowances and showing how the balance of N85billion will be paid with timelines.

ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi who stated this on Sunday in Ibadan while speaking to newsmen added that the members of the Union have said only concrete evidences of implementation by the government would make them return to the classrooms.

According to Ogunyemi, while ASUU has rejected Government’s proposal of N20billion (which is to be paid in two tranches) made by the government on the revitalisation of Universities, the union is asking government to mainstream the earned academic allowances into the 2019 budget which is still being worked on by the National Assembly.

He lamented that the Nigeria’s ruling class does not see education as a priority but prefer to create new education colonies of private educational institutions which cannot meet the needs of Nigerian children.
