ASUU Strike: Lecturers Gives FG a Week to Release N22.27bn Earned Allowances

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

ASUU gives the Federal Government a one-week window to release N22.27 billion in earned allowances.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has issued another warning to the Federal Government to deliver the N22.27 billion it claims it has approved to pay earned academic allowances owed to its members as soon as possible.

When the union’s three-week ultimatum expires, the union claims that’s the only way to avoid another extended strike.

Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the union’s president, issued the warning in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune on Sunday, adding that the three-week ultimatum has only one week left before the union can take the next step if the government does not succumb to its demands.

According to him, despite all of the assurances, ASUU has not heard anything from the Federal Government regarding the delivery of the funds, and it has also not publicly communicated with us about the matter.

ASUU had been raising public awareness about its lingering contentious issues with the Federal Government in various fora in recent months, particularly after the expiration of its August deadline, threatening to go on strike if the Federal Government did not honour the last agreement it reached with the union last December.

The agreement covers, among other things, the provision of funds for the revitalization of dilapidated infrastructure (hostel accommodations, suitable lecture theatres, state-of-the-art laboratories, a good working environment for lecturers, and so on), the payment of Earned Academic Allowances (EAA), and stopping the proliferation of state-owned universities while neglecting the funding of existing ones.
