ASUU Strike Will Soon Be Called Off – FG

The federal government has stated that the strike action by ASUU will soon be called off . This was disclosed by the Minister of Labour and employment, Dr Chris Ngige. He said that going by the discussion and meetings had with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the past few weeks, the ongoing strike action by the union which has paralysed academic activities in the universities nationwide will soon be called off.

According to him, this is due to the fact that the Federal Government has put into consideration some of ASUU’s demands, including the submission of the union’s list of outstanding payments, and the identification of some areas in the universities in need of revitalisation as contained  in the signed 2009 agreement.

The minister said talks with the union have so far been productive and fruitful, adding that the federal government was optimistic that the strike would soon be called off to pave way for students to resume academic activities.

He said: “There are areas that are still outstanding which we are going to address on the 17th. We have the issue of shortfall of salaries, that of some federal university workers.
