The Academic Staff Union of Universities says the federal government should have used the recovered $23 million Abacha loot to meet its demands.
Emmanuel Osodeke, president of ASUU, spoke on Tuesday in an interview on Channels Television.
ASUU has been on strike since February 2022 to protest the non-implementation of its demands by the federal government.
The federal government and the US reached an agreement to repatriate a new batch of funds looted by Sani Abacha.
Abubakar Malami, minister of justice and attorney-general of the federation, the recovered loot, which is ‘Abacha-5’, has been earmark for the completion of the Abuja-Kano road, Lagos-Ibadan expressway and the Second Niger Bridge.
Following the announcement, conversation has been rife on whether the federal government is making the right decision; on the recovered loot amid the lingering ASUU strike.
