ASUU Signs Agreement with Federal Government: Strike to end Soon
The Federal Government has signed a memorandum of Understanding MOU with the Academic Staff Union of Universities ASUU with a view to end the five month old strike.
President of ASUU, Nasir Fagge confirmed to newsmen after the meeting that the document contained the non victimization clause and the 200 billion naira government promised to lodge at the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN for funding infrastructural development in Nigerian universities.
Fagge noted that the agitation was only to ensure that up to date facilities are put in place in the universities so that they can measure up with others across the world.
He said the Union's National Executive Council will meet soon with a view to calling off the strike.
Earlier, supervising minister of education, Nyesom Wike said government will continue to do all it can to ensure the development of the education sector.
