FG takes action to address ASUU’s demands

The Federal Ministry of Education has began addressing the Academic Staff Union of Universities‘ demands (ASUU). The ministry confirmed this in a press statement issued Thursday by Ben Goong, its Director of Press and Media Relations.

The education ministry stated in a press release headlined, ‘Federal Government establishes white paper drafting panels for tertiary institutions,’ that ten white paper drafting panels have been established.

“Following receipt of reports from Visitation Panels to Tertiary Institutions last year, Education Minister, Adamu Adamu, has established White Paper Drafting Panels for Tertiary Institutions across the country,” the statement said in part.

Ten White Paper Drafting Panels have been established for 36 universities, six for 25 polytechnics, and five for 21 colleges of education.

“One Panel is tasked with the responsibility of drafting a White Paper for four interuniversity centers. In the next days, the Panels will be inaugurated.

“All Panels have two weeks to submit their reports from the date of their establishment.”

As of the time of posting this story, ASUU President Prof Emmanuel Osodeke could not be reached for comment.
