ASUU To Meet With FG Today: Strike May be called off if meeting goes well


Today, the Academic Staff Union of Universities will meet with members of the Federal Government to discuss its ongoing strike action.
ASUU President Professor Emmanuel Osodeke said the meeting was to examine one of the seven problems the organization is protesting.

If todays, meeting goes smoothly, according to Professor Osodeke, the strike action might be called off.

“That is the issue of renegotiation,” Osodeke said, “the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement.

“It is not just about wages. It has to do with the system, funding, the structure, the autonomy and other issues; and how to fund universities.

“The government has reduced it to just salaries alone. But if they had looked at the whole agreement and implemented it, we will not be talking about funding.”

“We are willing to sign,” he said.
