ASUU Strike: FG Cannot Meet ASUU Demands Due To Recession – Minister Of Labour & Productivity



Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Productivity, has stated that efforts to resolve the crisis between ASUU and the Federal Government was stalled due to the fact that the union is demanding N248 Billion as payment for earned allowance.

He mentioned that among the 8 demands presented by ASUU, it is only the issue of earned allowance that is still unresolved.

According to him, the Federal Government will not be able to cough out such an amount of money at the moment considering that the economy of the nation is currently in recession.

He further stated that the government proposed to be paying a certain amount to ASUU on a monthly basis pending when the first tranche of money earlier disbursed to ASUU for that purpose will be audited.

However, ASUU brought up a counter proposal which made the two parties to retreat to allow further consultations after which they will reconvene to continue negotiation and hopefully resolve the issue.
