The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it rejected offer by the Federal Government after the meeting.
The meeting which ended in a deadlock earlier this week, saw the ASUU rejected the Federal Government’s offer because it is “miserable”.
ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday titled, ‘Why ASUU rejects government’s award of salary’.
Recall that ASUU had on Tuesday met with the FG through the Prof. Nimi Briggs committee.
The statement read in part, “The major reason given by the Federal Government for the miserly offer, paucity of revenue, is not tenable.
“ASUU believes that if the leakages in the management of the country’s resources are stopped, there will be more than enough to meet the nation’s revenue and expenditure targets without borrowing and plunging the country into a debt crisis as is the case now.
