The Federal Government has agreed to release N30bn earned academic allowance to the university lecturers
This is part pf the outcome of the meeting yesterday. It was gathered that the money will be paid in tranches between May 2021 and February 2022.
The FG also promised to spend N20bn on the revitalisation of the education sector as part of concessions meant to end the seven-month strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The government team was led by Ngige, his minister of state, Festus Keyamo (SAN), and others, while the ASUU delegation was led by its President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi.
Speaking earlier before the meeting, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, said students were being recruited into the #EndSARS protests following the closure of universities occasioned by the ASUU strike.
He expressed the hope that ASUU would call off the strike soon, noting that the government had been finding ways to end the seven-month strike.
