Group asks FG to fulfil agreement with ASUU or else....

ABUJA—AS the industrial action embarked
upon by the Academic Staff Union of
Universities, ASUU, enters its 10th week, the
Anti-Corruption Network, has given the Federal
Government one week within which to settle its
problems with the Academic Staff Union of
Universities, ASUU, or face nationwide mass
It also advised President Goodluck Jonathan to
write to the National Assembly for virement or
seek for loan to settle the demands of
university teachers.
The group said it would mobilize Nigerians to
the streets and protest to the Ministry of
Education, should government fail to do the
Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network
and former member of the House of
Representatives, Dino Melaye, said yesterday
that government’s attitude showed it had no
interest in the future generation of Nigerians.
Melaye said: “The Federal Government as far
back as 2009, went into an agreement with
ASUU and signed that agreement. Why will you
agree to what you don’t intend to do?
“A gentleman will go into an agreement and
then carry out the agreement to the latter. The
agreement was made in 2009; why was there
no budgetary provision for that agreement in
2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013?
