BREAKING NEWS: ASUU 5months old Stike has been called Off

After five months and 10 days that the public
universities have been shut due to the strike by
the Academic Staff of Union of Universities, the
Federal Government and the universities
lecturers on Wednesday finally resolved to sign
the 2013 Agreement.
This is the review of the FGN-ASUU 2012
Memorandum of Understanding reached on the
2009 Agreement.
Both parties, however, refused to give details of
the agreement to journalists who witnessed the
signing of the agreement.
The meeting was almost aborted by the union
but for the prompt intervention of some
stakeholders.
ASUU had on Tuesday vowed not to attend the
meeting because there was no commitment and
proper invitation from the government.
The union had demanded the proof of payment
of the N200bn universities infrastructure fund,
non-victimisation clause, review of the
Agreement in 2014 and that a representative of
government, preferably the Attorney-General of
the Federation sign the agreement as conditions
to call-off the strike which began on July 1.
It was gathered that the union got three of its
demands while it relinquished one to the
government.
