Yesterday The striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), agreed to consider the federal government’s offer and suspend their strike within a week..
Speaking with journalists at the end of the meeting, Biodun Ogunyemi, national president of ASUU, said the dialogue yielded “a concrete proposal”, but that the union would have to reach its members for a decision.
“Now we have some concrete proposal that we will take back to our members for consideration,” he said.
Also addressing journalists, the minister of education said the demands of the union had been taken care and that it would call off its strike within a week.
Since ASUU embarked on strike on August 14, the government has held meetings with the union, which were deadlocked, until that of Thursday.
