The National Parent-Teacher Association of Nigeria (NAPTAN) is consulting with the Federal Government over the lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Reports gathered say that the association is also proposing the payment of ten thousand naira (N10, 000) per session for each parent to assist the government in making more funds available for universities.
NAPTAN’s Public Relations Officer, Dr. Ademola Ekundayo, disclosed this during an interview with reporters on Tuesday.
Ekundayo, who lamented continued closure of universities in the country, said parents were at the receiving ends of the disagreement between the Federal Government and ASUU.
It could be recalled that the protracted industrial action of ASUU started on the 14th of February, 2022 with the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU) and the Non-Academic Union of Allied and Education Institutions (NASU) choosing to resume work at affected public universities today.
