BREAKING: ASUU/FG To Meet Again To End Strike

Published

on

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will meet the government again to call off its eight-month-old striek after the Federal Government offered to pay the lecturers N70 billion.

The union had embarked on an indefinite strike in March over non-implementation of agreements and resolutions the federal government reached with it in 2009.

The union embarked on strike before Coronavirus lockdown demanding for improved working conditions and rejected the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

Efforts to make the lecturers go back to the classroom has proved abortive as they demanded reversal to the original pay system.

The FG further agreed to settle the arrears of salaries of the lecturers before December 31.

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.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Ngige said the parley was fruitful, adding that the government made a proposal to ASUU which it would take back to its members.

He said, “Many issues were discussed at the meeting including salary shortfall, the payment system and revitalisation of the university system. I am positive that all the issues would be resolved at our next meeting.”

The ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, simply said everything Ngige said was correct and declined further comment.
