The Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) has revealed that the negative impact not following through with its struggle could have government-owned universities charging students exorbitant school fees.
ASUU Chairman at Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto, Dr Abubakar Sabo disclosed this while on a television programme concerning the issue of the negotiations and agreement with the federal government.
Abubakar revealed that students in Arts, Social Sciences, Education, Others will pay about N300,000 per session while those in Science, Medical and other related faculties will pay about 450,000.
In his words “My projection is that those in faculty of art, Education, Social sciences and others will pay about N300,000 annually.
”Those in sciences and other related will pay about N450,000.”
The federal government last Wednesday had threatened to institute legal actions against the Academic Staff Union of Universities over protracted strike after the three hour closed door meeting flops again.
Among the bones of contention in the nearly ten month old strike is the implementation of the Integrated Payment and Payroll System (IPPIS).
The IPPIS project, which commenced in 2007, is responsible for payment of salaries and wages directly to the bank accounts of federal government employees.
IPPIS also appropriately deducts and remits third party payments from the salaries of federal government workers.For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please Call or Send a Text to 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
