He said others were delay in renegotiation of FG/NASU and SSANU 2009 agreement, non-payment of retirement benefits of outgone members, neglect and poor funding of state universities.

He also noted that the unions were aggrieved over government’s failure to honour the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed on Oct. 20, 2020.

The union scribe added that out of the seven issues, only one has been partially resolved while the other six have not been attended to by government, three months after the MoU was signed.

He, however, expressed dismay over the way and manner in which the N40 billion released by government as Earned Allowances was disbursed to the advantage of the academic staff.

“Our stand is that sharing money based on unions in the universities by the Federal Ministry of Education should stop.

“Our stand is that Federal Government must halt the release of funds for Earned Allowances until the outcome of the forensic audit conducted on the previous payments,” he said.
