JUST IN: ASUU President Rejects N50m Intervention To End Strike


Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke has rejected N50 million cash intervention to end the ongoing strike.

Recall that ASUU has been on strike since February over funding of the revitalisation of public universities, Earned Academic Allowances, University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS) and promotion arrears and the renegotiation of 2009 ASUU-FG Agreement and the inconsistency in the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System.

ASUU President, Prof. Osodeke, and his team were on Saturday morning invited by the host of Berekete Family radio, Ahmad Isah, popularly known as Ordinary President.

According to DailyTrust, ASUU President was invited to explain to Nigerians the problems and reasons the union is still on strike.

Isah also said that he had set up a special intervention bank account domiciled in TAJ Bank to raise funds for the union, with a view to ending the strike.


To convince ASUU to buy into the idea of the intervention, Isah publicly showed the N50 million cash donated by Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State.

At that point, Isah threatened to discontinue the intervention and many Nigerians who phoned in during the programme described ASUU as ”insensitive”.
