The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has warned the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari that its members are running out of patience with its policies on education.

The university lecturers listed their grievances at a briefing addressed by ASUU President Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi in Lagos yesterday.
The grievances include lacklustre implementation of the 2009 ASUU/Federal Government Agreements, non-remittance of Earned Academic Allowances and non-remittance of N605bn outstanding Needs Assessment Intervention.
Other contentious areas include: non-functioning of Nigerian Universities Pension Management Company (NUPEMCO), short falls in personnel emoluments, University of Ilorin non-functioning ASUU chapter, funding of State Universities, non-release of white paper on special visitation to eight universities, appointment of Prof. Ishaq Oloyede as Registrar of Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and  state of the nation.
According to the ASUU President, the leadership of the Union decided to meet journalists to voice out their frustrations so that Nigerians can join them in appealing to government to honour all of its agreements.
“What we have in ASUU is a bottom-up approach. We will not tell you anything that has not been agreed on by our members. We have had wide consultations and we are now telling the world what our members are saying: that they are running out of patience with this government.
“At this stage, we are only aggregating and telling the world what they are talking about. And let it not look like ASUU often takes delight in embarking on strike action. We want the world to hear us and appeal to government to honour agreement reached with ASUU,” Ogunyemi said.
“We are not passing votes of no confidence but if any government is not getting it right policy wise, education wise, governance wise, it is our responsibility to voice it out,” Ogunyemi said.
