The Academic Staff Unions of Universities has finally suspended its the three months old strike.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU National President, said this while addressing newsmen after a two-hour closed door meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, on Thursday in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that ASUU had embarked on strike on November 4, 2018 over its demands for revitalisation of universities, academic earned allowances, issuance of Universities Pension Management Company and others.
According to him: “After government proposals for addressing all outstanding issues in the 2013 Memorandum of Understanding and 2017 Memorandum of Action, NEC resolved to suspend the strike.
“The strike is suspended conditionally with effect from 12.01am on Friday, February 8.
“However, should Government fail to fulfill its part of the agreement as reflected in the 2019 Memorandum of Action, ASUU shall resume its suspended strike as the union deems it necessary.”
In his address, the minister said eight areas of disagreements were discussed and resolved by the two parties.
According to him: “We have dealt with all the eight contending issues and some of them have been implemented.
“ASUU has license for the Universities Pension Management Company on January 28, 2018.
“On the issue of salary shortfall in the universities, the Federal Government has released N16 billion, out of which N15.384 billion is for universities, while the rest is for other tertiary institutions.
“The Vice-Chancellors have acknowledged the receipt of the funds.
“We also have the issue of a committee to liaise with state government-owned universities, ASUU and the Federal Government through the Ministry of Education.
“That committee has been inaugurated two weeks ago.
“The visitation panel has been constituted and will commence work on March 2, 2019.
“On the issue of earned allowances, the Federal Government has released N20 billion for the payment to all categories of university staff.
“For the earned academic allowance, the Federal Government has released N25 billion and for the revitalization fund, a total of N25 billion will be released in the period between April and May 2019.
“The Federal Government will also resume full implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding entered into in 2019.”

COVID-19: Governors received N1billion each from Buhari, N1.1billion from World Bank – Yahaya Bello

Published

on

By

Governors of the 36 states were said to have received N1billion each from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to cushion the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Governors were also said to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Bank to receive a sum of N1.1billion for the same purpose.

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State made this revelation on Tuesday while featuring on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily.

According to Gov Bello, all the state governors have since received the N1billion from the Federal Government.

However, Yahaya Bello said he was the only state governor who refused to sign an MoU with the World Bank.

Asked why he received the COVID-19 fund from the Federal Government despite not believing in the virus, Bello said, “even though we did not have COVID-19 in Kogi State, we are equally affected; because our economy was equally affected and Federal Government released that fund to assist every state and we cannot reject it.”

He stated that he refused to sign the World Bank MoU because it was a one-sided agreement or document.

“Go and check records. Kogi State is the only State that refused to sign that document for N1.1bilion because I don’t believe in COVID. N500million has been disbursed, Kogi State did not receive and I refused to receive and I rejected it,” he said

The Kogi Governor debunked allegations that his government hoarded the CA-COVID relief packages in Lokoja or anywhere in the State as being rumoured.

The allegations, he said, were to discredit state governors and the Federal Government.
