ASUU President, Nasir Fagge has described as untrue stories making the round that the National Executive Committee of ASUU has been in crisis over the modalities for the disbursement of N200billion released by the Jonathan administration for the revival of public universities.
The ASUU President stated that the ASUU leadership is working closely with a team set up by the Jonathan administration to effectively disburse the said funds. He said there is not truth in the said insinuations about the ASUU leadership fight over the Federal Government money.
Dr Fagge in an interview with journalists said: “I think it’s a rumor that there is disagreement among ASUU executives. What I’m aware of is that government has also in collaboration with ASUU set up a committee that is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the N200 billion is disbursed to Universities.
“I know that committee has met about thrice and another meeting is going to take place this month and I am confident that at that meeting the committee will finally disburse the funds”.
