The money will reportedly be paid in tranches between May 2021 and February 2022.The Government also promised to spend 20 billion naira on the revitalisation of the education sector as part of concessions meant to end the seven-month strike declared by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
These were part of the agreements reached during the meeting between the Federal Government and ASUU leadership.
Speaking earlier, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, had said students were being recruited into the #EndSARS protests following the closure of universities occasioned by the ASUU strike.
He expressed the hope that ASUU would call off the strike soon, noting that the government has been finding ways to end the seven-month industrial action.
