ASUU Set To Call Off Nationwide Strike As FG Agrees To Pay The Union N70bn


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has agreed to call off its strike which has lasted for 8 months.

 

The union leadership reached the consensus during a meeting with the government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, on Friday, November 27, in Abuja.

 

The Nigeria Government also pledged to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.

 

This comes one week after the FG accepted the demand by the ASUU that they be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
