ASUU Strike Update: Jonathan Approves N400bn Lifeline –SSANU by Manchidede(m): 6:17am On Aug 19, 2013
ASUU strike: Jonathan approves N400bn lifeline –SSANU



The end to the present strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may be in sight as President Goodluck Jonathan has approved N400 billion for the infrastructural development of Nigerian universities.

The document to this effect is expected to be made available today at the meeting of the presidential committee on implementation of the NEEDS assessment in the universities with the leaders of the four university-based unions – the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions (NASU), the National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT) and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The President of SSANU, Samson Ugwoke, made the revelation while addressing his union members at the SSANU National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the weekend at the University of Abuja.

Ugwoke, briefing the SSANU members on the activities of the NEEDS assesment implementation committee, led by Benue State Governor, Gabriel Suswam. He noted that the fund was different from the N100 billion Governor Suswam had raised from donor agencies and big companies to tackle the problems of Nigerian universities in 2013.

The labour leader said: “Let me give you a tip on what the NEEDS assessment committee is doing. The president has approved that within the next four years; N400 billion would be expended in infrastructural development of Nigerian universities, to transform the universities to international standard.

“N100 billion has already been raised by Suswam committee out of which 61 universities have been pencilled down, as contained in the NEEDS assessement committee. The N100 billion is expected to address needs of the universities in the areas which include re-furbishing and renovation of lecture theatres and lecture halls, re-furbishing and renovation of laboratories/libraries and the renovation of hostels.

“The second category is building of new hostels of international standard, self-contained rooms, the latest model in the world. That is the standard to be built in every university, and also the state-of-the-art laboratories as well as classrooms, lecture theatres and the halls.”

Ugwoke pointed out that the money had been shared and out of the N100 billion, N96 billion had been sent to universities.

He added: “The committee is meeting again on Monday, and by Monday (today), the document will be out. This time around, it is not only by giving university money, but it will be monitored to ensure that the money is used to transform the universities, to bail universities out of the present situation and developed to an international recognized university standard.”

I really pity GEJ and Nigeria...
GEJ is being forced and pushed to do some s¡lly things just to satisfy everybody..

400bn is about to move into the belly of some crooks..

Our major problem is not money, but Mismanagement.

The school fee of about 20,000 undergraduates in addition with the over 15,000 pre-degree, diploma, and post-graduate students is almost enough to succesfully run a standard higher institution.

No one cares about the facility (if it gets damaged) since na government property.

I really pity our country..
We all know this fund will yield nothing! aside new SUVs around campus and other petty lab equipments that will be used in producing nothing aside generating and disbursing graduates without employment..

Make una dey there dey talk una own, the strike continues from the latest report I've got, FG is putting the cart before the horse, if GEJ likes, he should transform all Nigerian universities in the mold of Harvard, if he does not implement their so called "Earned Allowance" the problem would still persist. All the lecturers trully want is a bulging pocket so as to show off at the same par with their political croonies. The long rhetoric of infrastructure is just a charade.
