ASUU Strike: Universities in Nigeria Will Resume January – Ngige
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, on Monday reveal to the public that the Academic Activities in Nigeria Universities will resume January.
He made this known while speaking in Alor, Idemili South local government area of Anambra State, during the launch of Ngige free medical outreach at the Community’s Health Center.
According to the Minister, the negotiations between the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Federal government had reached 98 percent, adding that it remains only two percent to be completed.
Furthermore, he said that by midnight today, there are some works they’re supposed to get on to do and ASUU also have some work they are supposed to do on their own side with their people.
A meeting will also be held on Tuesday afternoon to put everything on the table and compare.
Ngige said he believe that they might have come to the end of the strike when they meet tomorrow.
“Well, it is a journey of a thousand miles which you will have to take one step first. Tomorrow, all things being equal, we will agree now to agree because we were disagreeing before.
“We disagree to agree and agree to disagree formerly. But tomorrow, I hope we will agree to agree. Once we do that, schools will re – open in January,” the Minister said.
