Federal government to shun unions and let the universities mgts take care of modalities and sharing formulas:SSANU, NASU ACCEPT,ASUU KICKS AGAINST
 
The FG during the negotiations with ASUU last week promised that the sum of N170bn  would be included in the 2023 budget to take care of two major demands of the university-based unions.
 
The sum of N120bn will be released as revitalisation funds to the universities while the remaining N50bn will be allocated as earned allowances.
 
It was also gathered that the union(ASUU)leaders kicked against the proposal because the government pleaded to delay the payment till 2023.
 
Sources within the ASUU National Executive Council accused the government of being insincere.
 
“They are making it seem as if the N170bn and the N50bn are two separate funds. The sum total is N170bn: N120bn will be for the revitalisation fund while the remaining N50bn will be for the earned allowances.”
 
Another source confided in our correspondent said, “Yes, it is true, they will commence the payment by 2023. Unfortunately, we will not listen to promises this time round.”
 
Meanwhile, our correspondent also gathered that unlike the last tranche of earned allowances when ASUU negotiated for 75 per cent of the total earned allowances that were released, the government decided to leave the discretion of payment to the university management.
 
A source, who is a senior official at the Federal Ministry of Education, explained to us that the decision to allow the university management to decide on the sharing formula was to avoid the victimisation of other university unions by ASUU.
 
“The government went through lots of issues last year. ASUU was saying they would receive 75 per cent while the other unions would receive 25 per cent. The government has decided to shun the union and let the universities take care of modalities,’’ the official disclosed.
 
Confirming the development, the National President of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Muhammed Ibrahim, said, “There will be no sharing modalities for this particular tranche. There will be no percentages. The government has decided to adopt the mode of payment that was adopted in 2013.
 
“The government will be paying the money straight to the universities. The university management will pay the allowances at their discretion. There will be nothing like percentages. This is a welcome development.”
 
Reacting to the development, the ASUU national president, Osodeke, said, “We don’t care whomever they pay it to. We have better issues to discuss. We have gone beyond that; whatever they want they should do. We are on strike and we are ahead. We don’t have issues with any union; it is the government we have issues with and negotiating with. Our EA is calculated and we don’t negotiate with others.”

‘Although I’m In Another Party, I Can’t Tell People Not To Vote For Obi’ —Senator Abaribe
~0.9 mins read
‘Although I’m in another party, I can’t tell people not to vote for Obi’ —Senator Abaribe 
 
“There is no gainsaying the fact that Obi has galvanized interests of people not just in Igbo land but across other geopolitical zones. He has revolutionarised the system. People are now saying let’s now go and vote.
 
“People who had lost interest before are now showing interest in voting. Though I’m in a different party, the truth is that it will be difficult for me to say: Don’t vote for Obi. In fact, some parties have already adopted him. They tell people: For President, vote for Obi, and then for other positions vote our party.”
 
He said that the political cabal in the country never envisaged the eruption of Obi phenomenon, but added that the movement is massive and exponential.
 
” People are fed up with the old system and they want a breath of fresh air.
They have seen Obi as somebody that will bring the fresh air and that is why they are rallying behind him.
 
“If he wins it will bring a paradigm shift to the system.”
