The leadership of ASUU says it has accepted the offer and would take it to its members.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it has agreed to consider the federal government’s offer and suspend their strike.
Some good news for Nigerian students as lecturers on strike have finally agreed to suspend it.
This great news comes after 12 hours, 30 minutes of a closed door meeting between ASUU and a government delegation in Abuja which started 1:38pm on Thursday, September 7 and ended 2:15 a.m. on Friday, September 8.
According to Premium Times, the leadership of ASUU, however, said though it accepted the proposal presented by the government, it will take the proposal to its members and get back to the government in a week.
The national president of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi, told journalists after the meeting that the union will come back after one week to take its final decisions.
He said: “Now we have some concrete proposal that we will take back to our members for consideration.”
Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, said ASUU’s demands have been addressed and the union will get back to the government in a week after consulting with its principals.
