The federal government has made a fresh fifteen billion naira offer to striking University teachers as part of revitalization funds and earned academic allowances.
The government at the end of yesterday’s meeting shifted ground with the offer, which now raises the revitalization and earned academic allowances to sixty-five billion naira.

Speaking after the meeting, the Minister of Labour and Employment Dr Chris Ngige, said government has agreed to pay the lecturers’ withheld salaries from February, using the old payment platform.

He said the University Transparency Accountability System developed by Academic Staff Union of Universities as an alternative to Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, is still being studied to make government make informed decision.

In his address, the President of Academic Staff Union of Universities Professor Biodun Ogunyemi agreed that there is a headway but insisted that the union will table government’s offer to its members ahead of next Friday’s meeting with the government.
