The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), on Thursday has finally reach an agreement with the federal government to suspend the strike, which has lasted for three months.
This comes after ASUU signed all agreements with the Federal Government, following a conciliatory meeting in Abuja.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, represented the Federal Government, while the lecturers were represented by the union’s president, Biodun Ogunyemi.
According to Ngige, both parties unanimously resolved the eight contentious issues that had prolonged the strike.
Addressing reporters at the end of the meeting, Ogunyemi said: “On Sunday, November 4, 2018, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) resumed its strike action, which was conditionally suspended on 14th September, 2017.
“The action of 2017 was suspended following the signing of a memorandum of action (MoA) in which the federal government of Nigeria (FGN) promised to address the contentious issues within a timeline that was to end in October 2017.
