ASUU Strike Continues As Govt Says 'We Don’t Have N50bn'

Recall that we gave you an update about the the meeting between Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Federal Government, the strike still continues as federal government says we don't have N50billion. 

 The meeting between the Nigerian government and the (ASUU) has ended in a deadlock again.

Both sides were in an emergency meeting earlier on Friday in Abuja.

Chris Ngige, Minister for Labour and Employment, said the Nigerian government had met the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) halfway.

He said this while addressing newsmen after the meeting between the striking lecturers and representatives of the Nigerian government in Abuja.

On the question of whether the government had met ASUU’s demand for N50billion, he said: “We have met it halfway. We have offered what we have; we don’t have N50 billion. The Minister of Finance has also said so, that the Federal Government cannot afford N50billion now.”
