ASUU Warns Buhari Against Slashing Health and Education Budget

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against cutting down the health and education budgets in the proposed 2020 revised appropriation.

The union has also asked the government not to defraud the nation by muddling up budgeted social intervention funds with donated funds meant for palliatives for the vulnerable to cope with COVID-19 which has negatively affected their livelihood.
