SERAP Urges Buhari To Redirect Presidency, National Assembly Budgets To ASUU

Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The right group as a matter of urgent importance,advised Buhari to redirect some of the presidency’s N3.6 billion budget for feeding and travels, and the N134 billion allocated to the National Assembly for 2022 to ASUU.

SERAP also called for the recovery of “missing N105.7 billion of public funds” from ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to fund public tertiary institutions.

SERAP Deputy Director,Kolawole Oluwadare,in a letter on July 2,said meeting ASUU’s demands would address the inequality in educational opportunity.

SERAP lamented that the government’s inability to implement the agreement with ASUU has kept many students at home while the children of politicians attend private schools.

Education gives people the ability to access information detailing the range of rights that they hold, and government’s obligations.

The right group warned the President to swing into action on its demand within seven days or face legal actions to compel the government to comply.

The union had accused the government of poor funding and little commitment to the payment of academic earned allowance (EAA).

Citing the continued use of the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and the refusal to adopt the Universities Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as some of its demands.
