ASUU Strike: Government, union agree on forensic audit of N30 billion subvention
•ASUU to get monthly allocations as talks begin
The Federal Government and ASUU have agreed to initiate a forensic audit of the sum of N30 billion given to union in 2010, just as they also agreed on monthly remittances to the university teachers’ body while the inquiry lasts.
Details of the yesterday’s meeting in Abuja were sketchy as at press time, as officials of the Ministry of Labour and Employment and representatives of ASUU were silent on whether the agreement was strong enough to suspend the two-day old industrial action which began on Monday in most universities across the federation.
The Deputy Director, Press in the ministry, Samuel Olowookere quoted the minister, Dr. Chris Nwabueze Ngige as saying, “we wish to assure members of ASUU and indeed all Nigerians that government is already at work to resolve all outstanding issues in line with the resolve of the present administration to cast any form of disruption of universities’ academic calendars into the dust bin of history.”
