Strike Action: Federal Govt and ASUU reach agreement 

An agreement has been reached between the Nigerian Government and the striking university lecturers, with a high possibility of ending the teachers’ prolonged industrial action.

Biodun Ogunyemi, who is the national president of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, made it known that the National Executive Committee of the union will take a close look at its decisions focusing on the new commitment by the federal government.

He made it clear that the strike can only be ended or not after the NEC meeting. He did not state exactly when the meeting will take place.

The lecturers have embarked on the strike action since on the 4th of November demanding an improved funding of universities and implementation of previous agreements earlier made with the government.

After the meeting which was held on Monday, Chris Ngige, who is the minister of labour and employment, stated that an agreement had been reached.

According to the minister, the accountant general and the ministry of finance have made a confirmation with evidence that a total of N15.4 billion had been released to take care of funding in public universities.

On earned allowances, Mr Ngige made it known also that President Buhari has given approval of N20 billion to be used to offset the outstanding payments of the 2009 to 2012 audit verified earnings in the universities.

He stated that the earned allowances will be handed over to ASUU as soon as the process is completed.
