The National president of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) Professor Abiodun Ogunyemi has said that the union has shelved its plan to mobilise its members for industrial action to press home its demand for the fulfillment of the agreement it reached with the federal government.
The ASUU president, disclosed this during an interview with newsmen in Ilorin, at the weekend on the sidelines of ‘‘Day of Tributes’’ held in honour of the late Prof Samson Olatunde Oduleye who was a member of the UNILORIN 49+.
The programme which was attended by members of UNILORIN 49 and their families was held at the deceased’s Adewole Estate residence, Ilorin, Kwara state.
The ASUU’s president, however, demanded for an evidence from the federal government to show that the balance of the N25 billion earned academic allowances earlier released to universities had been ‘‘mainstreamed in the 2019 budget’’.
