JUST IN: Big Hope for Students as ASUU Makes Huge Announcement After Meeting With FG



The leadership of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU) have suspended their strike actions.

The strike was suspended by SSANU and NASU on Saturday, August 20, after a brief meeting with the minister of education, Adamu Adamu in Abuja. Channels Television reports that the leadership of the union said that the suspension which would last for two months will take effect from Wednesday, August 24. 

Adamu confirmed that the Federal Government has committed N50 billion to pay earned allowances for members of SSANU, NASU and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). While activities in the public institutions will still be limited to non-academic issues due to the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Adamu said ASUU rejected the government’s proposal over the “no work, no pay” rule. 

The statement read: “The two months is to allow the government to implement the agreements reached. “Part of the agreement is the decision of the government to set aside the sum of N50 billion for the payment of earned academic and earned allowances, the cogent decision on the University Peculiar Personnel Payroll System (U3PS), the release of the white paper on university visitation panel and funding of the universities. 

On the poor funding of federal institutions, the Minister said he directed the National Universities Commission (NUC) to ensure that all the schools are up-to-date on what they are supposed to do, otherwise sanctions will be visited on any institution that defaults."
