ASUU Strike Hindered Bursary to Education Students
ASUU Strike Hindered Bursary to Education Students says FG.
The Federal Ministry of Education on Monday noted that the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has hindered the payment of bursary to students of education in universities.
In 2021, FG promised to release bursaries to students studying education in universities and colleges of education.
“Undergraduates of B.Ed/B.A. Ed/BSc. Ed in Public institutions are to receive stipends of N75,000.00 per semester while NCE students will get N50,000.00 as stipends per semester.
Speaking to the press, Adejo said, “The implementation of the payment of stipends has commenced.
However, due to the strike, we have not been able to get the data of all the students in universities. We only have 7 per cent of the required data to be processed for payment.”
