ASUU Given N208bn to Upgrade Universities

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved N208billion for the upgrade of Nigerian universities.

This was disclosed by the President’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Ahmad Bashir, via his Twitter handle.

“President @MBuhari approves N208 billion to upgrade Nigerian universities’ infrastructure.

“And the good news made ASUU trending again tonight, interesting,” he tweeted.

He further made it known that the approved funds will be released through TETFUND.

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) had recently called on Nigerians to pressurise the Federal Government to honour their agreement to forestall fresh strike.

The union’s President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi had made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

ASUU has been negotiating with the Federal Government on the need to improve the state of Nigeria’s educational system.

Let’s hope that:

  1. The money is enough for the required upgrade.
  2. The money is actually used for the required upgrade and not siphoned.
  3. The expected upgrade reaches University of Uyo.

What are your thoughts?
