The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has challenged the federal government to stop distorting facts about funds released to the union.
National President of the union, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the ongoing strike was still lingering due to a few disagreement between the government and the union on the mode of releasing the agreed funds.
Speaking with The Nation over the weekend, Ogunyemi, said the comment credited to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige that N163 billion was released to the Union was a distortion of facts.
He disclosed that the N163 billion mentioned by Ngige was released to the Universities by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund, TETFUND, to meet specific needs in the universities and not the revitalization fund being demanded by the unions.
