We can’t allow ASUU hold us by jugular, push us to borrowing —Keyamo

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has said the government will not allow the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to plunge it into another burden of borrowings.

Keyamo made this assertion while speaking during an interview with ‘Politics Today’ on Channels TV on Friday.

He said the federal government has explored all avenues to reach a truce, but the striking ASUU members turned deaf ears.

Keyamo stated that ASUU failed to honour dialogue with the key stakeholders holding the purse of the federal government.

The minister said the government cannot go beyond its capacity, because it is not only ASUU that is feeding from the federal government purse.
