The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, University of Abuja branch, has said contrary to the claim by the federal government, the union did not receive N100 billion from the federal government.

The union blamed the government for its ongoing strike, saying it frustrated all genuine efforts it had made to end the industrial action.

The University of Abuja branch chairman, Dr Kassim Umaru, speaking Tuesday, during the union’s congress at the University’s Mini Campus in Gwagwalada,said “the congress deliberated on issues around the strike and vehemently rejected the offer presented by the federal government.

Reacting to the reports that the federal government has approved another N100 billion for the university unions as part of the 2009 agreement, Umaru said “all these being said in social media and newspapers are not true.”

Umaru,who said said the union has a structure on how it takes decisions, added that the National Executive Council,NEC, will meet at the end of the four weeks ultimatum to take its decision,on the lingering strike.
