FG Agrees To Deploy UTAS For Payment Of Lecturers’ Salaries

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) said the union will be meeting with the federal government today, Tuesday, to discuss one of its demands.

The National President of the union, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, said talks will centre on the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement both parties reached.

He made this known while speaking on Politics Today, a programme on Channels Television on Monday.

Prof. Osodeke disclosed that the government has agreed to deploy UTAS – preferred by ASUU – in the payment of lecturers’ salaries.

“The government has reduced it to just salaries alone.

“But if they had looked at the whole agreement and implemented it, we will not be talking about funding,” he said.
