Release Our N25bn, ASUU Threatens FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has urged the Federal Government to release the N25bn it approved for lecturers.

ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, made the demand during a valedictory lecture and book presentation by the former Vice-Chancellor of Michael Okpara University, Umudike, Prof Ikenna Onyido, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, on Saturday.

"When we signed the Memorandum of Action with government on February 7, we agreed that by February 28, the N25bn would be released, and government signed it."

"That's why we're saying that government has defaulted and if our members come up with any decision because government has defaulted, the leadership can't stop them."

"We're only calling on Nigerians to prevail on government to make good its promises and not just to tell us about paper release."
