The Federal Government has accepted to disburse N30bn earned academic allowance to the university lecturers.

The money will be paid in tranches between May 2021 and February 2022.

It was gathered that the FG also promised to spend N20bn on the revitalisation of the education sector as part of concessions meant to end the seven-month strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.


These were part of the agreements reached during the ongoing meeting between the FG and ASUU leadership on Thursday.



He expressed the hope that ASUU would call off the strike soon, noting that the government had been finding ways to end the seven-month strike.


The government team was led by Ngige, his minister of state, Festus Keyamo (SAN), and others, while the ASUU delegation was led by its President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi.

Ngige said, “For the past one week, we have all been on our toes; we have been meeting and we pray that this meeting will yield some good fruits.
