#ASUU Bombs FG Following Festus #Keyamo Speech

#ASUU Bombs FG Following Festus #Keyamo Speech—Following the interview granted by the Minister of state for Labour, Festus Keyamo, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it never asked the federal government to go borrowing.

Speaking in a chat on Sunday, the National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said it was subtle blackmail for anybody to insinuate that the union is pushing the government to borrow.

He advised that the government should get its priorities right to solve the impasse and do the needful.

“We are not asking the government to go borrowing. But since the Minister is a Nigerian, he should know what our demands are.

“Our demands include that they implement the Memorandum of Action signed in 202 with us.

“The document says government will release the first tranche of the Revitalisation Fund, pay Earned Academic Allowance, stop proliferation of universities, renegotiate the 2009 agreement among others.

“They have set up a committee to renegotiate the 2009 Agreement and they are yet to come up with anything from the report of the committee they set up.

“I wonder why some people behave as if they are living in another world entirely. Is it because they are occupying public offices that they seem to exist in another planet?” he wondered.
