End your strike, Jonathan begs ASUU again
Posted on: October 24, 2013, 08:02:40 AM
President Goodluck Jonathan has
once again called on the members of
the Academic Staff Union of
Universities to call of their lingering
strike.
Jonathan, who was represented by the Coordinating Minister of Education,
Mr. Nyesom Wike, at the 29th
convocation of the University of Ilorin
on Wednesday, said the Federal
Government would systematically
continue to address challenges of the university system.
According to him, the Federal
Government has increased the budget
of education from N234.8bn in 2010
to N426.5bn in 2013. He added that
the FG in 2013 allocated N55.74bn to the university sub-sector alone.
Jonathan also said FG had released
N130bn to universities for
infrastructural development and
payment of earned allowances to staff
of universities. He added that the government was
seriously working on the best ways to
ensure the implementation of the
Report of the Needs Assessment
Committee for Universities.
“I wish to once again call on ASUU to allow reason to prevail by immediately
calling off their ongoing strike action
in the interest of the nation and our
children while government
systematically continues to address
the myriads of challenges facing our university system.
“I call on the university teachers to
work with the government to make
our universities centres of excellence,”
Jonathan said.
