Buhari Approves Payment of Outstanding ASUU, NASU Arrears
During the month of September, the Academic Staff Union of Universities went on a nationwide strike that threatened to cripple the country’s academic foundations and only suspended the strike after series of meetings, most of which ended in stalemates.
An agreement was reached that the FG would pay the union all the money owed them in form of arrears from the commitment of the past administration that was made in 2009 on or before the last day of October. And as the month drew to an end, it started to seem like it was only a matter of time before the strike would resume in full earnest as reports revealed that the FG had given no ‘show of faith’ in offsetting at least some of the debt.
Today however, the Party’s official Twitter page announced that the FG has paid the debt owed to ASUU and their sister organization NASU, Non-Academic Staff Union.
