Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU of Imo State University (IMSU) and their counterparts at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO) yesterday insisted that unless federal government implements the agreement entered into with the union in 2009 and 2012, the strike would continue.
A communique issued after their meeting in Owerri and signed by ASUU chairman in IMSU Rev. Dr. Chidi Nwadiaro said the union would remain at home if the Federal Government fails to implement the agreement.
Nwadiaro said the total sum of money due to Nigeria universities according to the agreement is about N500 billion, adding that out of that amount, the Federal Government announced a release of only N100 billion.
He noted that the N500 billion is required to provide infrastructure in universities.
The union urged well meaning Nigerians to appeal to the Federal Government to revitalize public universities by implementing the 2009 agreement.
