The Academic Staff Union of Universities has stated that it had no words for the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu.
Recall that the Education minister during the 47th Session of the State House Ministerial Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja had asked ASUU to compensate students for the period wasted.
Adamu had also said the government would not pay the university workers for the time lost.
Speaking with our correspondent, ASUU National President, Prof. Osodeke simply said, “We have no words for him”.
ASUU had embarked on strike on Monday, February 14, 2022 following what the union tagged as the failure of the government to meet some of the lingering demands of the union.
The union is seeking the release of revitalization funds for universities, deployment of the University Transparency Accountability System for the payment of university lecturers; release of earned allowances among others.
