Strike: ASUU Reaches New Agreement With FG

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has reached a new agreement with the federal government after four hours of meeting with the leadership of the House of Representatives at the National Assembly in Abuja.

The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, who chaired the meeting, announced that the meeting produced some agreements, though the agreements were not disclosed.

The agreement is, however, subject to the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently at the United Nations General Assembly meeting at the UN.

 Gbajabiamila stated, “There were basically seven areas where ASUU has presented what we considered to be requisition for them to go back to strike. We have looked at the seven areas, we have more or less agreed on certain things.”

He said that “Once that is done, the leadership of this house will await the return of Mr. President from the ongoing General Assembly. We will meet with Mr. President. We will lay the agreement reached by the legislative arm of government. I am hopeful that Mr. President will buy into the agreement, and with that, I believe that this matter will be speedily brought to a close.”

  ASUU president, while speaking at the meeting, said, “It is a good development, and we are waiting for what they will send to us to commit our members. We hope that within the immediate future, this issue will be resolved.”
