FG To Give ASUU N22.72 billion On Wednesday

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, has said the Federal Ministry of Finance and National Planning will commence the disbursement of funds to universities on Wednesday.

The minister said the government is certain that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will not embark on the planned strike.

Mr Ngige said the government had already fulfilled the payment of the first tranche in January and was about to pay another N22.72 billion earned allowances.

He said the N30 billion revitalisation fund is already in the account of the National University Commission and ready for disbursement to the schools.

Recall that Victor Osodeke, the President of ASUU, on Monday, said the union will embark on another industrial action if the government continued to renege on the 2020 agreement.

The union had accused the federal government of failing to implement the agreement after it called off its nine-month-old strike in December 2020.

This is a developing story…
