ASUU To End 10 Months Strike

By Austin Edoho

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has finally decided to call off the 10 months strike which commenced in March this year.

This decision was reached after the Academic body had an 8 hour closed door meeting on Wednesday morning in Abuja with the federal government,  headed by the minister for Labour, Dr. Chris Ngige.

ASUU expressed their joy and satisfaction over the way the government acceded to their request. They had demanded for the government to honour the agreement they had in 2009.

They had asked the federal government to pay Universities their revitalization money, pay their earned allowance, remove them from IPPIS payment platform, and pay them their withheld allowance. All these the federal government finally agreed to.

The federal government also negotiated to pay them 40 billion naira earned allowance, and 30 billion naira revitalization money.

From all indication, the 10 month strike may soon be over.
