Lecturers in colleges of education have threatened to down tools over what they called Federal Government’s lackadaisical attitude to address their demands.

The lecturers, under the platform of the Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU), asked Nigerians to hold the government responsible if academic activities in colleges were paralyzed.

COEASU President, Smart Olugbeko, in a statement on Monday, said the government had refused to redeem its promises to release the N15bn Revitalization Fund it pledged in 2018.

He said the implication of this was the deplorable conditions of the teaching-learning infrastructure that would have been addressed had the fund been released.

“It smacks of serious insensitivity that the FG is still looking for an account from which the palliative already approved should be paid over four years after the approval,” he said.
