Federal Government To Pay University Staff N22.172bn

The Government of Nigeria has announced that it will pay N22.172 billion earned allowances to staff of universities in Nigeria.

According to THIS DAY, the federal government says it will pay university workers on or before October 30, 2021, adding that the amount has been provided for in the 2021 Supplementary Budget.

This was disclosed by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, on Thursday after a marathon conciliation meeting between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

Ngige said, “A worker is due his wages. As government, we don’t agree that we will use issues of incomplete data to hold back salaries of workers for months. We think that should be sorted out as well. We gave a timeline of the end of the month to do this”. Information Guide Nigeria

He also said that the six issues on the agenda were satisfactorily addressed between both parties.
