Strike: ASUU, FG Conclude Negotiation

The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have concluded negotiations, with strong indications that the on-going strike embarked upon by the union since December 4, 2011 may be called off soon. This was the outcome of a meeting coordinated by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim, with executive members of the union in Abuja.
It would be recalled that among the issues ASUU tabled before the Federal Government was the agreement both parties entered into in 2009. The agreement revolved around improvement in universities funding, review of the process of appointing Vice Chancellors, review of the retirement age of lecturers to 70 years, among others. It was also gathered that based on this the Senate last week extended the retirement age of professors in Nigerian universities from 65 to 70.
