According to a news that was published by the Channels Television yesterday evening, it was reported that the Academic Staff Union of Universities, through her chairman, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, has outlined three new conditions to the Federal Government of Nigeria, if the Union will end its six-month-long academic strike.
While he was speaking during an interview on Channels Television, Osodeke said the federal government must exhibit transparency, which means that, they should tell Nigerians, the amount of money that has been approved as revitalisation fund for public universities, how much is it ? where the money is presently and when will it be released ?
Secondly, he said the federal government must clearly state her position on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, UTAS, which the Union recommended to replace the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system, IPPIS.
Further talking, Osodeke made his third demand, as he said, the federal government should let the Union and Nigerians know, if, they have accepted the agreement they both reached with FG’s panel, instead of the FG addressing newsmen without no agreement between them.
