The Academic Staff Union of Universities said late on Wednesday that its members should not be held responsible if there is any disruption in the university system.
This, the union said, was because the Federal Government had not shown commitment in carrying out the 2019 Memorandum of Action.
The ASUU National President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this at a briefing in Abuja while giving an update on the ongoing renegotiation with the government and to clear the air over the N25bn confirmed by the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, to have been approved for universities.
Ogunyemi said the N25bn was meant to be a part-payment of the Earned Academic Allowances and should have been released between February 15 and 28, 2019, as agreed. But this was not done.
