The National Association of Realtors of Parent-the Teacher of Nigeria has sought an audience with the Federal Government over the general strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.
The association has also recommended the payment of N10,000 per session for each parent to support the government in making more funds available for universities.
The Association Public Relations Officer, Dr.Ademola Ekundayo, stated during an interview. He lamented the continuous strike and said parents are at the receiving end.
Ekundayo said, “We have submitted a letter to the Office of the Education Minister, seeking for audience where we hope to discuss a proposal.
“We are proposing a sum of N10, 000 per parent every session that will be directly paid to the universities. That will be our contribution apart from other statutory payments in making more funds available to the universities.
“It can be called parent support levy for universities. We are at the receiving end of the industrial action. We plead with the ASUU and Federal Government to immediately resolve their differences.”
