In a bid to end the lingering strike action, the Federal Government today offered ASUU leadership, N65 billion for Earned Academic Allowance and revitalisation.
Chris Ngige, minister of labour and employment, presented the offer on behalf of the government during a meeting with the union in Abuja on Friday.
The amount, according to the minister, was meant to address the union’s demands which include earned academic allowances and revitalisation of universities among others.
“The FG reiterated that her offer of N40 billion or 35 billion whichever is accepted by ASUU was for all the universities unions: ASUU had proposed that N40 billion be paid immediately for all unions,” the Minister said.
Ngige said all vice-chancellors are to submit details of the EAA/EA to the National Universities Commission (NUC) on or before November 30.
