ASUU faults 2019 education budget

ASUU

Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said the union is not satisfied with the percentage allocated to education in the 2019 budget describing it as the worst in recent past.

This came as the union said it felt betrayed by the federal government as regards the fulfillment of mutual agreements reached by both parties before its strike was suspended in February.

ASUU noted that the government is yet to pay the N25 billion earned academic allowances it agreed to pay before the suspension of the strike in February this year.

In a statement by its chairman ASUU, UI, Professor Deji Omole, he said ASUU believed that government will do the needful by fully implementing the mutual agreement now that elections are over.
