The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has stated the reason why the government cannot meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). According to Ngige the government cannot meet the Union’s request due to the present economic situation in the country as ASUU is demanding N110 billion for revitalisation of tertiary institutions amongst other requests.

Ngige, who stated this on Wednesday night while briefing journalists immediately after a closed-door meeting with ASUU members in Abuja, reiterated that government had offered only N20 billion it can afford.

“This government is not against revitalisation but this government says that because of the economic situation, because of COVID-19, we cannot really pay in the N110 billion which they are demanding for revitalization,” the minister said.


  1. Fuck you and fuck this useless administration…. If to say na steal money is very each but to spend money on useful thing is going to be hard…

  2. Ngige or what ever you call him should go and tell that nonsense to the woods
    They have trillions to loot but when it comes to important issues that need to be attended to in the country, they start to give nonsense flimsy excuses

  3. This revitalization ought to have been done right from the onset not now that COVID-19 sets in and their is no money to tackle all those things, the government is not up and doing in delivering their responsibility at all.

  4. The situation that the government are complaining now is not the ASUU’s problem because the government is the one handling the situation of the universities will negligence.

  5. Does the money just jump to that amount? Is it not the money accumulated to that huge amount of money? Government should always attend to their responsibility without delaying it to the next time.

  6. Is it because their wards or children are not schooling in our federal university that’s why our governments are behaving in such. Why can’t you solve it gradually before accumulated to such. You are now complaining about #110 billion, it’s better to look for a way to resolve the situation with ASUU.

  7. Is that your reason? I swear you did not have point… you have to meet up with ASUU demand without any excuse.

  8. There is nothing important this government can offer to we Nigerian. The future of young generation is at risk. A strike of Seven month still has no way of reconcile

  9. I don’t blame Nigerian Government and ASUU for lingering or playing with this strike of a thing
    Because most of them their children are studying abroad so because of that they don’t care about Nigerian Universities.

  10. If they had their children school here, even with the present state of the economy they would find a way to give out that money.
