The federal government has made a fresh N15 billion offer to striking university lecturers as part of the revitalization funds and earned academic allowances.

At the end of the  meeting on Friday , the Federal government shifted ground with the offer, which now raises the revitalization and earned academic allowances to N65 billion.

Addressing journalists after the seven- hour long meeting, the Minister of Labour and Employment,  Chris Ngige, said government had agreed to pay the lecturers’ withheld salaries from February, using the old payment platform.

He said the University Transparency Accountability System developed by ASUU as an alternative to IPPIS, was still being studied to make government make informed decision.

ASUU President agreed there was a headway but insisted the union would table government’s offer to its members ahead of next Friday’s meeting with the government

  1. I love what Gbajabiamila had done in quick response to this ugly situation. This connotes the action of a true leader and this is a lesson expected of a real leader. Some other fellows will wait until things degenerate and world leaders begin to shout before they’ll begin to cook a lie for the public through their professional lier aids. My speaker sir. Keep going!
