ASUU Strike: FG Calls All VCs To Abuja For Crucial Meeting

The Federal government had given University lecturers an ultimatum to resume classes today, Monday 9 December but the lecturers refused to obey this directive.

Following the University lecturers refusal to call off the lingering strike and resume classes, the Federal Government has summoned all Vice Chancellors of federal and state universities to a crucial meeting in Abuja on Wednesday.

Also invited to the meeting were members of the Implementation Monitoring Committee (IMC) On Needs Assessment Report for inauguration.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Executive Secretary, National Universities Commission, Professor Julius Okojie, on behalf of the Supervising Minister of Education, Barrister Nyeson Wike and published in a national daily today.

According to the statement, the Vice Chancellors are to come to the meeting with a list of their prioritised projects based on Needs Assessment Report for funding and Vice Chancellors of state universities must come along with with their account details.

It is not clear whether the meeting was called to disburse the N200b the government said it had deposited in an account with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, which ASUU is insisting must be communicated to it formally.
