ASUU Drags FG Universities' Funding

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has listed nine key sins by the federal government.

ASUU’s National President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke told Newsmen on Tuesday at the University of Abuja.

Osodeke stated that the Union has also given the Federal Government a two-week ultimatum, warning of potential industrial action if pressing issues in public universities are not addressed.

According to him, ASUU is disappointed in the government’s lack of effort to address the challenges, despite the Union’s patience.
