A fresh crisis appears to be looming in the Education sector; following the threat of another round of industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over Government’s failure to re-establish Governing Councils across Federal Universities

The warning was issued on Tuesday by ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, who expressed the union’s dissatisfaction at a press conference held in Abuja.

He criticised what he perceived as the nonchalant approach of the President Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government towards academic matters in Federal Universities.

Additionally, the union raised objections to the recent salary increments of 35 per cent for professors and 25 per cent for other stsff in the university system.

The ASUU President said the union views the increments as vulnerable to withdrawal by the government at its discretion.

Professor Osodeke emphasised that ASUU had given ample time to government to address the issues; doubling down on the legality or otherwise – of the decision to dissolve governing councils in the first place
