ASUU To Meet With FG Today, Strike May Be Called Off

The President of ASUU, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, disclosed this on Monday while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, said the meeting was to discuss one of seven issues is protesting over.

He said that if all goes well, the strike action may be called off.

Osodeke said “This is about the issue of renegotiation of the 2009 agreement. It is not just about wages. It has to do with the system, funding, structure, autonomy, other issues; and how to fund universities.

“The issue of IPPIS and UTAS has been put to rest. If the government agrees with us tomorrow, everything will be resolved.

“The government has reduced it to just salaries alone. But if they had looked at the whole agreement and implemented it, we will not be talking about funding. We are willing to sign.”
