The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has debunked the report that it requested N1tr from the federal government in exchange for ending its strike.
The National Chairman of the union, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, refuted the rumour in a statement today, February 28, 2022.
Recall thatThe News Beam had earlier reported that ASUU declared a four-week warning strike on Monday, February 14 at a press briefing at the University of Lagos after the National Executive Council (NEC) 2-day marathon meeting in Lagos.
Osodeke said, “It’s not correct”.

“The outcome of that meeting was reported. Nobody mentioned N1 trillion. We don’t respond to all these rumours. What we’re demanding is coming after the government agreed to spend N1.3 trillion in 2009,” the ASUU president was quoted by The Cable to have said.
“It was to be released N200 billion per year for five or six years. They didn’t do that which is what we’re asking for,” he added.
