ASUU Strike – FG and ASUU finally agreed to end strike

The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of University, ASUU, finally agreed to end the ASUU strike which as lasted for five-months now.

Universities have remained closed for months as both sides failed to agree on the implementation of terms reached in 2009. Both sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding yesterday evening.

I the meeting, the minister of Education has represented  Federal Government while the ASUU President, Dr Nasir Fagge represented the ASUU Union.

The lecturers demand improved welfare and better funding for universities, and have consistently rejected the government’s plan to implement agreed terms in bits.

Wednesday’s agreement came a day after the Presidency presented a proof of payment of N200 billion into an account with the Central Bank of Nigeria as part of funding to offset the lecturers’ demands.

The strike by ASUU followed government’s inability to keep to an October 2009 agreement reached by both parties.
The agreement was reached after two years of negotiation between the lecturers and a government team appointed by the then Education Minister, Obiageli Ezekwesili.

The Government team was led by the then Pro-chancellor, University of Ibadan, Gamaliel Onosode while ASUU’s team was led by its then President, Abdullahi Sule-Kano.

The ASUU leaders will be meeting soon to review the government’s offer.

However, during the meeting ASUU as reminded Federal Government to improve in Educational welfare and better funding for the universities in order to avoid yearly strike.

FG and ASUU finally agreed to end ASUU strike. We hope this as be resolved once and for all.
