- FG expects strike called off within a week
The Federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, have finally reached a truce that could herald the end of the strike.
Rising from a 12-hour meeting with the government, ASUU President Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi told newsmen that an agreement had been reached, but he still needed to relay it to the national body of the union.
ASUU has been on strike since Aug. 14, 2017, over claims of unpaid allowances and failure to implement agreements reached in 2009.
The FG delegation was led by Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu who told newsmen that ASUU’s demands have been fully met and the strike is expected to end within a week.
