ASUU might end strike as FG shifts position on meeting demands.

Published

The federal government has agreed to provide an additional sum of N15 billion to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

This means a cumulative sum of N65 billion has been provided for the settlement of the lecturers’ allowances and the revitalization of the university system. During a 7-hour meeting on Friday, November 20, it was also agreed that ASUU will be exempted from the Integrated Personnel Payroll System (IPPIS) which has been generating hiccups against the end of the strike action. Legit.ng notes that this is coming weeks after the federal government insisted that the lecturers’ body could not determine how it should be paid to its employers. Reading the communique at the end of negotiations, minister of labour and employment, Chris Ngige disclosed that the federal government shifted ground on some demands of ASUU.


The minister also stated that the salary arrears of the body’s members from February to June 2020 will be paid using the old salary payment platform, GIFIMS.

Atiku speaks on presidential election 2023.

Published

Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the claims by the All Progressives Congress (APC) which accused him of making plans to get the presidential ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) ahead of the 2023 election.

The former vice-president on Thursday, November 26, said he has not initiated discussions with anyone about contesting the next presidential election, The Nation reported. Atiku in a statement through media aide, Paul Ibe, told the ruling party to focus on tackling the mounting problems it has created instead of verbally attacking him. He said the living condition of Nigerians have worsened under the APC government because the party has been focusing more on playing petty politics than on actual governance

Atiku said:

“It is evident that the APC has failed woefully on all the major issues it campaigned against the PDP in 2015 from poverty to insecurity; joblessness and high cost of living; national unity to bad foreign image; human rights abuse to economic recessions – issues which if the APC was a serious political party, should be dispensing its energy in resolving.”
He accused the ruling party of being more interested in increasing its membership while more important issues in the country were being ignored. Atiku stated that he has preoccupied himself with providing solutions to the problems the APC has caused for the country. Meanwhile, following the recent defections that hit the PDP, Dr. Ahmad Lawan, the Senate president has explained why the APC will continue to harvest more defectors.

The Nation reported that Lawan explained that President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration was starting to get appreciated by the people.
