PTAN Debunks Alleged N10,000 Donation to ASUU


Parent Teachers Association of Nigeria (PTAN) has debunked the social media news trend that each parent would contribute N10,000 each to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to allow them to call off their six-month strike .

In a statement made available to journalists in Kaduna on Friday, National Parent Teachers Chairman Alhaji Danjuma Haruna denied that PTAN had never decided to contribute money to ASUU.

“We want to distance ourselves like we’ve never met to discuss that. So Nigerians should ignore the news.

Haruna also warned those who peddled such baseless statements to refrain from such acts and to stop using his name to cause confusion in the country.

“We are not involved in statements regarding donating money to ASUU so that they can call off the ongoing strike,” he stressed.

“Our position since the start of the strike has been that both the ASUU and the federal government come to an agreement. But not to contribute money to ASUU.”

In addition, the statement noted: “PTAN is still pushing for negotiations between ASUU and the government so that the ongoing strike affecting the quality of education in the country will end.

Meanwhile, the president also called on the federal government to rescue all of the remaining kidnapped high school students across the country who are still in bandit dens.

Haruna denounced the current situation of female students abducted by Yawuri who are still in captivity for more than 400 days.
