The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has reacted to claims by the Federal Government that there were no funds to meet the demands of the union.
This is as the union again blamed FG for the ongoing strike in public universities.
The union’s National President, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, stated in an interview.
Osodeke said, “The government said there is no money but they have money for elections. Between education and election, which one is much more important? They constructed a railway from Kaduna to Niger Republic, is that more important than education?
“They claim there is no money, but the President increased the duty tour allowance and you see them travelling from one country to another. Does that prove that there is no money? Who are the ones benefiting from the DTA? Aren’t they political office holders? But the one that concerns the ordinary Nigerians, they claim they don’t have money. It is not correct; it is just the issue of priority”.
