ASUU strike: Lecturers warn Buhari govt, reveal why strike in still on

By - - [General ]

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has challenged the federal government to stop distorting facts about funds released to the union.


National President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the ongoing strike was still lingering due to a few disagreement between the government and the union on the mode of releasing the agreed funds.

Speaking with The Nation over the weekend, Ogunyemi, said the comment credited to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige that N163 billion was released to the Union was a distortion of facts.


He disclosed that the N163 billion mentioned by Ngige was released to the Universities by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, TETFUND, to meet specific needs in the universities and not the revitalization fund being demanded by the unions.

He said “The Minister of Labour referred to the release of N163bn which was not released by the Ministry of Education for revitalization. That fund he alluded to was from TETFUND.

“TETFUND was there when we carried out the NEEDS Assessment in 2012. What we called Revitalisation Fund today is a product of that exercise of 2012. We have always drawn a line of distinction between what TETFUND gives and what we should access from the NEEDS Assessment Fund. They are different terms of interventions that should not be equated to one.


“TETFUND as an intervention agency is ASUU brainchild which became a reality. The funds from the NEEDS Assessment is to fix specific items of deficiency in our system.

“Unfortunately, both federal and state governments have now relinquished their responsibilities to TETFUND. The Federal Government budget for education in term of capital project funding is worrisome.

“That is why we keep saying that the Ministry of Labour and Employment should stop saying N163bn has been released to ASUU. ASUU is not a spending agency of government. We don’t spend government money. When money is released, it goes to the universities and governing councils who are representatives of government in the schools. It is a distortion if we say N163bn was released to ASUU.”
