The Federal Government and the
Academic Staff Union of Universities
have reached an agreement to end the
over five month old strike by ASUU.
The lecturer’s association has however
said that its members may return to
work next week.
The Supervising Minister of Education,
Mr. Nyesom Wike told journalists at a
meeting with the leadership of ASUU,
President of the Nigeria Labour
Congress, Executive Secretary of the
Nigerian Universities Commission and
five vice- chancellors of universities that
all contending issues between the
parties have been resolved.
The parties signed a document to seal
the agreement which spells great hope
that the over five-month old strike may
be called off within one week, although
the president of ASUU, Professor Nasir
Faggae declined to say what was
contained in the document.
ASUU’s demands include the upward
review of the retirement age for
professors from 65 to 70; adequate
funding to revitalise the university
system; progressive increase of
budgetary allocations to the education
sector by 26 per cent; transfer of federal
government property to universities;
setting up of research and development
units by companies; payment of earned
allowances; and renegotiation of the
The agreement between the two is
reached barely 24 hours after the
Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Dr.
Doyin Okupe presented a proof of
payment of N200 billion into an account
with the Central Bank of Nigeria.
The strike began on July 1 st 2013 and
lasted for over five months before this
resolution was reached.
