FG Loves Education, $23m Abacha Loot Would Be Used To Meet Our Demands – ASUU

The federal government, according to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), should have used the $23 million in recovered Abacha loot to fund its demands.

ASUU President Emmanuel Osodeke made this known during an interview on Channels Television on Tuesday.

Recall that Since February 2022, ASUU has been on strike to protest the federal government’s failure to meet its demands.

Meanwhile, the federal government and the US agreed last Tuesday to return a fresh batch of money that former Nigerian leader Sani Abacha had embezzled and Osodeke has advised the federal government to deploy the recovered loot to education if they love the sector

The recovered wealth, known as “Abacha-5,” according to Abubakar Malami, minister of justice and attorney general of the federation, has been set aside for the construction of the Second Niger Bridge, the
Lagos-Ibadan expressway, and the Abuja-Kano road.

Following the announcement, the conversation has been rife on whether the federal government is making the right decision on the recovered loot amid the lingering ASUU strike.
