FG Denies ASUU Allegations (Fresh strike looms)
The Federal Government on Tuesday denied allegations that it had breached agreements it reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The Spokesman for the Ministry of Education, Ben Gong, who stated this in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja, also explained why the Federal Government could not adopt the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, a payment platform developed by ASUU.
According to him, UTAS does not make provision for tax deductions from salaries.
He added that ASUU members cannot collect salaries without paying taxes.
Recall that, ASUU on Monday accused the Federal Government of violating agreements it reached with the lecturers before they called off their strike on December 24, 2020.
The Union also accused the government of not paying the earned academic allowances as contained in the agreements.
But Gong, in the interview with The PUNCH, challenged the union to be more specific in its allegations that the government had violated agreements.
He said the ministry was preparing an official letter to seek clarifications from ASUU over its recent pronouncements.
