The ASUU Chairman of the UNICAL branch, Dr Edor J. Edor, has slammed the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over claims that it has no money to meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
According to the ASUU Chairman, such claim was a lie from the pit of hell.
Recall that the Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, had claimed that the Government lacked the money to meet some of the demands of ASUU.
The Minister stated that the N1.3trillion revitalization fund ASUU is demanding for is a promise made to the union by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
TEAM PLATO reports that ASUU during the announcement of its one-month warning strike on February 14 explained that the decision was taken due to the Federal Government’s delay in implementing their agreement.
The agreement include issues of salaries, the revitalization fund for universities, and the adoption of the University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) payroll software.
Speaking to Daily Post, Edor said the strike will only end when the Buhari government meets its demand including the revitalization fund.
