After multiple meetings between ASUU and the Federal Government, both parties have reached an agreement.
The agreement was signed by the leadership of ASUU and the Federal Government. The lecturers, however, promised that they would resume strike if government reneged on the Memorandum of Action (MoA) just reached.
This will come as good news to students all over the country who have been eagerly awaiting a deal between ASUU and the Federal Government. The leadership of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) had vowed to disrupt the election if the ongoing strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) is not resolved.
“The continuous strike action by both ASUU and ASUP has not only brought increased pain on students and their parents, it is now seen by us as a deliberate ploy to disenfranchise our members, especially those who registered within their school environments and are presently in their various homes,” Comrade Danielson Bamidele Akpan, NANS president said.
