ASUU opens up on ending strike soon
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said there is no agreement with the Federal Government (FG) to end the ongoing strike soon.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the National President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said although the FG, some stakeholders in the education sector and selected religious leaders held a meeting recently with the four unions, no “concrete” agreements were reached.
ASUU has been on strike since February 14.
“We are not aware that we are calling off the strike,” Osodeke told Punch.
“We met but there was nothing concrete between us and the government. Like we said before, we do not want promises, we want actions, if they show action and implement all the issues, we will go to our members, but knowing their antecedents, we know they will not do anything.”
He added: “As far as we are concerned, only when they sign our agreements, accept UTAS, release EAA and revitalisation funds will we call the strikes off.”
