The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU has rejected the recent increment in tuition fees made by most Nigerian Universities.
ASUU’s position was made known at an award ceremony organised by the union to recognize journalists deemed to have been credible in reporting education in the country.
It described the increment as an attempt by government to deprive children of the poor of quality education.
It charged government to dedicate 26 percent of its budget to funding education.
For those awarded, it is a call for more work.
