ASUU: FG disburses N200bn assessment funds to universities

Following accusations by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) that the Federal Government is yet to commence the disbursement of the Needs Assessment funds to universities, the federal government on Monday distributed cheques worth N200 billion to Vice Chancellors of all public universities for the implementation of the needs identified in their institutions.

The Supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike distributed the cheques at a meeting with the VCs in Abuja, Monday, where he cautioned against diversion of the funds to purposes other than what they are meant for.

He disclosed that an accountability system would be introduced in March this year, for proper verification of the expenditure.
