ASUU May Call Off Strike Soon As A New Deal Is Offered by MubarokX(m): 11:45am On Sep 20, 2013
The Academic Staff Union of
Universities ASUU may call off the
lingering strike action across public
universities in the country, as the
Vice-President, Namadi Sambo met
with the leadership of the Academic
Staff Union of Universities, in Abuja on
Thursday.
The meeting which was held behind
closed doors had in attendance the
supervising Minister of Education,
Nyesom Wike and the Executive Secretary
of National Universities Commission, Prof.
Julius Okojie.
The union was led by its National
President, Dr. Nasir Faggae, and two
former Presidents of ASUU; Dr. Dipo
Fasina and Dr. Abdullahi Sule-Kano.
Others at the meeting were the Vice-
Chancellors of Bayero University Kano,
Prof. Abdulrasheed Abubakar; Prof. Isaac
Adewole of the University of Ibadan; and
Prof. Muhammed Hamisu of the Abubakar
Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi.
It was however uncertain if yesterday’s
discussion was fruitful as the two parties
did not disclose the outcome of the
meeting which lasted for two hours to
journalists.
Fagge, however, told State House
Correspondents that the union would
make its position known after the
National Executive Council meeting.
Wike assured Nigerians that students
would soon return to school as
government was ready to make sure all
the contending issues were resolved as
soon as possible.
According to sources this was because the
Federal Government had agreed to inject
fund to revitalize the university system.
“The meeting went well, the vice-
president made some new offers that
were different from what was on ground
before. For instance, the Federal
Government had agreed to start the
injection of revitalisation fund into the
university system starting with N100bn
this year and N150bn in 2014 and this
will continue until the university system is
solid enough to stand.
