ASUU Strike: FG,ASUU Set To meet again Today

The Federal Government and leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, are scheduled to  meet on Wednesday to iron out grey areas reached in the last agreement by both parties.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has accused the leadership of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of breaching a ‘gentleman agreement’ reached at their last meeting which held November 27 as regards calling off a nine-month-old strike.

Ngige, while reacting to claims by the President of ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, that federal government had failed to deliver on the timelines on offers made to the union, maintained that the timelines had been complied with and “faithfully implemented”.

The minister, in a statement from his media officer, stressed that ASUU agreed at their last meeting with the government team to call off the strike before December 9.

“The truth of the matter is that a ‘gentleman agreement’ was reached at the last meeting in which ASUU agreed to call off the strike before December 9, 2020, and the Minister, in turn, agreed that once the strike is called off, he would get a presidential waiver for ASUU to be paid the remainder of their salaries on or before December 9,” Ngige stated.
