ASUU Strike to soon be called off as ASUU-FG meeting proves fruitful

There is hope that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will call off its eight-month strike which has grounded academic activities in the public universities.

This followed the agreement reached between the union and the Federal Government delegates led by the Minister of Labour and Employment,  Dr Chris Ngige, in Abuja, on Friday, November 27th, 2020.

The government also pledged to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.

Briefing journalists after the eight-hour meeting, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, said the dialogue was fruitful. ASUU’s president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi agreed with the Minister’s remarks.

Ngige said the government has made a proposal which ASUU will take back to their executives.

The minister explained that several issues were discussed in the Friday meeting, including salary shortfall, the payment system for lecturers, and revitalization of universities. He expressed optimism that all the issues will be resolved at their next meeting.

ASUU is expected to report the agreement to its organs and then communicate their decision to the government after which a date for the calling off of the strike would be announced.

A source informed our correspondent that ASUU insisted that the agreement should not be announced until it has been approved by its members.
