ASUU Strike Update: FG and ASUU sign agreement to end strike

After five months and 10 days that the public universities have been shut due to the strike by the Academic Staff of Union of Universities, the Federal Government and the universities lecturers on Wednesday finally resolved to sign the 2013 Agreement.

This is the review of the FGN-ASUU 2012 Memorandum of Understanding reached on the 2009 Agreement.

Both parties, however, refused to give details of the agreement to journalists who witnessed the signing of the agreement.
The meeting was almost aborted by the union but for the prompt intervention of some stakeholders.
ASUU had on Tuesday vowed not to attend the meeting because there was no commitment and proper invitation from the government.
The union had demanded the proof of payment of the N200bn universities infrastructure fund, non-victimisation clause, review of the Agreement in 2014 and that a representative of government, preferably the Attorney-General of the Federation sign the agreement as conditions to call-off the strike which began on July 1.

The Punch, however, gathered that the union got three of its demands while it relinquished one to the government.
