    This was confirmed by the National President of ASUP, Dr. Anderson Ezeibe, and the Chairman, ASUU FUTMinna, Dr. Gbolahan Bolarin, on Thursday.
    This is part of efforts to end ongoing strikes by the union.

    Confirming the payment on Thursday, Ezeibe, however, said “that was just the beginning.”

    He said, “The government has started responding. They just started paying the salary/minimum wage arrears, the one they have refused to pay.

    However, that is just one of the demands, so we have not reached anywhere. They have not attended to the others, but I can confirm that people have started receiving alerts of the arrears owed.”

    The higher education sector has a critical dual roles to play in every society; producing a higher-level capacity workforce, conduct research and development that contribute to the economic growth of the nation.
