“We will resist it with all our might” – ASUU doesn’t want to be on Buhari’s Single Treasury system

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has expressed it’s displeasure at the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to include their financial activities in the Single Treasury Account.

Speaking at the end of the National Executive Council meeting held at the Imo State University, Owerri, the ASUU president, comrade Nasir Isa, explained that the move was a plan to rob universities of their autonomy.

He said while the union appreciates steps put in place by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to promote transparency and accountability in public institutions including Nigerian universities, it would resist retrogressive policies capable of robbing the university system of its autonomy.

He said all over the world universities control their finances for the purposes of short, medium and long-term planning.
