The Federal Government has declared it does not have enough money to meet the financial demands of striking members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). The government, two weeks ago, offered to release N20 billion for revitalisation, but ASUU insists on N110 billion. Also, ASUU is demanding for the N30 billion Earned Academic Allowance promised by the FG. In total, the government has offered to release N50 billion to the striking lecturers. Meanwhile, this is h is a far cry from what ASUU is asking the government to release. According to The Nations, these are some of the issues discussed at the resumed meeting between the government team and ASUU delegation on Wednesday in Abuja. This meeting, like the others, again ended in a deadlock. Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, briefed reporters at the end of the meeting. He said the government side will meet separately on Friday to consider the counter – offer tabled by ASUU.
