Stop False News. ASUU Told FG
Universities yesterday alleged that the Federal Government was mischievous in saying that it had released N163bn to the union to suspend the industrial action.
The union asked the government to concentrate on efforts towards finding a quick resolution of the impasse rather than dissipate energy on fake news and cheap propaganda aimed at tarnishing the image of the union.
In a statement by the Ibadan Zonal coordinator of the union, Dr Ade Adejumo, the union said the government “knows that it is governing councils and university administrations that receive and spend all the money coming to the university.
According to him, contracts and all capital projects are awarded by the councils appointed by the government.
He said vice chancellors and governing councils should stop behaving like vultures and come out to put the record straight each time the government comes out with “deliberate falsehood that money has been released to ASUU”.
