ASUU Strike Continues After Yesterday's Meeting With Government

  • ASUU STRIKE UPDATE; lecturers meeting with govt officials last night ended in deadlock as meeting was adjourned to Monday next week
Hopes of quick resolution of the present face-off between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities were dashed on Tuesday as the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, said the government has no resources to meet the union demands.

The striking university lecturers were asking for N92 billion in extra allowances and the government can not fulfill that now, because they are trying to cut public expenditures. If the demands of the university lecturers are met and “we continue to pay them salaries and allowances we will not be able to provide infrastructure in the universities”, she said.
