N30bn Earned Allowance to be Shared Between ASUU, NASU, SSANU, others – FG


The federal government has revealed that, the earned allowances that the government has promised to release to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), will be shared with other university unions in the country and not just limited to ASUU.

On October 16, the federal government in a meeting with the representatives of ASUU, had agreed to release the sum of N30 billion as part of the unpaid earned allowance to workers, as part of the requirement to put a stop to the union’s six-month old strike action.

The government has now stated that, the monies will be shared between the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), and Non Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), after a meeting with representatives of the non-academics on Wednesday.

This was disclosed by the spokesperson of the Ministry of Labour, Charles Akpan. Mr Akpan said that the unions would work with the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, National University Commission (NUC) and Federal Ministry of Education to achieve that by the end of December 2020.
