Education they said is the key to success, but in Africa, particularly Nigeria, it seems the value of Education has faded away.

In case you missed it, this is about eight months since Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) embarked on nationwide strike following the demand of N110billion for revatilisation of tertiary institutions amongst other requests.


The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says the government cannot meet the request of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) due to present economic situation in the country.

ASUU is demanding N110bn for revatilisation of tertiary institutions amongst other requests.

Ngige, who stated this on Wednesday night while briefing journalists immediately after a closed-door meeting with ASUU members in Abuja, reiterated that government had offered only N20bn it can afford.

“This government is not against revitalisation but this government says that because of dare economic situation, because of COVID-19, we cannot really pay in the N110 billion which they are demanding for revitalization,” the minister said.
