FG releases N130bn to Universities Councils

The Federal Government yesterday asked striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to get back to their classrooms and resume work while all contending issues are being resolved as it had disbursed N130 billion to their governing Councils.

Anyim Pius Anyim, SSG to the federal government, set-off the disbursement of N130 billion sourced by the Gabriel Suswam led NEEDS implementation committee and the Federal Government for revitalising infrastructures within the university system and settlement of earned allowances arrears.

On July 2, 2013, ASUU declared what it called, "total and indefinite strike" over issues it says have remained unresolved pertaining to an agreement it reached with government in 2009.

ASUU is tough this time....
