ASUU TO COMMUNICATE DECISION ON FED. GOVT’S OFFER TODAY.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will today communicate its decision on the offers made to it by the Federal Government, its National President, Abiodun Ogunyemi said yesterday.
The Union had urged the government to show concrete evidence of commitment to agreements on meeting its demands on its on-going strike.
Ogunyemi said that contrary to some media reports, the union did not reject the government offer neither has it made fresh demands.
Labour & employment minister, Chris Ngige, after meeting with the union on January 4TH, said the government was about resolving the dispute with the lecturers who embarked on strike on November 5, last year. Ngige said the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Accountant- General of the Federation had provided evidence of 15.4 billion naira for the payment of salary shortfall in public universities.
The minister, however, said the fund was being worked on and would be released to ASUU as soon as the process was complete, among other demands of the union.
