 *ASUU rejects FG's offers, says strike continues*

- ASUU has today rejected the offers made by the federal government in a bid to stop the ongoing strike by the university lecturers

- The minister of labour, Chris Ngige, had earlier said that the federal government had released N15.4 billion to the public universities

- Ngige added that President Buhari had approved N20 billion to offset arrears of the 2009 to 2012 verified earnings by the university lecturers

- The union, however, insisted the federal government should release at least one tranche of N220 billion revitalisation fund spread over four quarters of 2019

There seems no end in sight to the ongoing strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) as the lecturers have rejected the offers made to them early this week by the federal government, Premium Times reports.

ASUU president Prof. Ogunyemi stated that the federal government is yet to release the N1.1 trillion of the N1.3 trillion it agreed to provide for the revitalisation exercise.

The union leader added that no Nigerian would believe the country does not have money to resolve the current education crisis.

He said: “I don’t believe any Nigerian will believe government does not have money for what they see as a priority. We keep telling them that overnight they brought out N800 billion to bail out what they now call Polaris Bank. When they had a problem with subsidy, they knew where they went to; so they cannot keep telling us there is no money."

Asked when the union would meet the government to reopen negotiation, Ogunyemi said the union was still consulting and there's no date yet.
