HEADLINES TODAY; Anxiety as ASUU decides to shut down universities


Less than one month after the Academic Staff Union of Staff Universities, ASUU, suspended its 8-month industrial action, the union and the Federal Government are back on a warpath. 

Already, the National Executive Council of the ASUU is set to meet on Monday (tomorrow) to decide whether to embark on another strike.
The meeting, which is expected to be held at the University of Abuja campus, comes on the heels of the October salary cut received by members of the union, weeks after suspending the prolonged industrial action. 

According to DAILY POST recalls that ASUU had on February 14, 2023, shut down both State and Federal government - owned universities over previous agreements yet to be implemented by the government. 

Clampdown: Currency traders petition IGP, to write Senate, CBN Foreign currency dealers have complained to the Inspector - General of Police, Usman Baba, about their ordeals in the hands of operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission following the arrest of some of them. 

The dealers will also send a copy of their petition to the Senate even as members of the Association of Bureau De Change Operators in the Federal Capital Territory, on Thursday and Friday met with operatives of the anti - graft agency. 

The meeting was aimed at resolving the forex crisis occasioned by the rush for dollars following the announcement by the Central Bank of Nigeria to redesign some naira notes. This is happening as the anti - graft agency intensified investigations into the financial transactions of the forex dealers in a bid to spot illicit activities such as money laundering. 

The forensic probe of their bank accounts, it was learnt, would help detectives in tracking down the forex dealers’ sponsors and their high - profile customers, especially government officials and political officeholders.
