ASUU gives FG conditions to suspend strike

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has given conditions to be met by the Federal Government before its two-week-old strike is suspended. The union also stressed that the current strike had nothing to do with demand for new salary, but for government to invest funds to provide facilities to enhance learning and research in the universities which the signed agreement put at N1.518,331, 545,304trillion from 2009 to 2011.

The Chairman of ASUU, University of Lagos (UNILAG) branch, Dr. Oghenekaro Ogbinaka, while addressing newsmen, accused government of only implementing 10 per cent of the contentious agreement since 2009 even as he revealed that the union was not avoiding the Minister of Education, Prof. Ruqayyatu Rufa’i based on the ongoing strike.
