On Monday, December 7, 2020, The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has disclosed that its members are in consultation over the proposal the federal government made to them.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, the ASUU National President, said its members are making consultations regarding their next line of action.
He further explained that the consultation would go beyond this week.
Following a series of meetings between the federal government, ASUU leadership, and the Labour Minister, Chris Ngige had promised that FG would pay all withheld salaries of University lecturers.
The Nigerian government also pledged to release N75 billion to revitalize all universities and the payment of Earned Academic Allowances.
However, Prof. Ogunyemi told Vanguard: “We have what the government is offering and have transmitted the same to our members nationwide, and we are consulting on what the next line of action will be.
“As for how long the consultation would take, I cannot say, but it may go beyond this week. Whatever we decide on is going to be in the national interest, the interest of our children, the interest of our members, and the good of all.”
