Honour Your Agreement With ASUU, Kano Emir Tells FG

Emir Sanusi of Kano, and Chancellor, University of Benin, Muhammed Sanusi II, has urged the federal government to honour all agreements it signed with the Association Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to over challenges of disruption of academic calender. 


Speaking during 45th convocation of the University of Benin, he said, “The worrisome development of late is the tug of war between the government and academic staff union of universities on issues bothering on fiscal policy of the government. The media, were recently, awash with news of threat of strike by ASUU over their integration into the integration payroll information system (IPPIS). 


“My advice to the government is that there should be a political will to honour all agreements it entered into with university unions; be more open to dialogue and try to involve all stakeholders in the decision-making process,” he said.
