Why ASUU May End Strike This Week
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is most likely to call off its one-month old strike this week.
ASUU president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, told newsmen the union has not called off the strike because it was still ironing out some grey areas in the agreement with federal government.
He assured the strike would be called off as soon as the grey areas were resolved.
The federal government had promised to meet demand of ASUU with release of about N220 billion not later than October 2017 to fund the revitalisation of federal universities as well as pay shortfall of salaries and accumulated allowances.
It was gathered ASUU’s leadership had another meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige last Friday to report the decisions of its members in accordance with the agreements between both parties.
