PTA Denies Donating N10,000 To End The ASUU Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has been on strike for six months, but the Parents Teachers’ Association of Nigeria has disputed that parents are prepared to pay 10,000 naira each to end the strike.


In a statement, the association’s National President, Alhaji Haruna Danjuma, denied the assertion was made on behalf of the group.

Remember how the National Parent-Teacher Group of Nigeria, NAPTAN, another association, proposed the cash to convince ASUU to end the strike.

Danjuma responded by claiming that the PTA was unaware of the claim and admonishing anyone or any group from exploiting their name to create misunderstanding across the nation.

According to him, “We are not involved in any statement related to paying money to ASUU for them to call-off the on-going strike.”

He added, “Our stand since the inception of the strike is for both the ASUU and the federal government to come to an agreement, which is to end the strike but not to contribute money to pay ASUU.”

The President of PTA pleaded with the federal government to rescue all kidnapped secondary school children and other Nigerians still held captive by bandits while also pleading with the government to pay attention to ASUU’s demand.

Danjuma bemoaned the state of affairs in Yawuri, where bandits have been holding kidnapped female students captive for more than 400 days.
