News update about ASUU Strike
After about 9 months of being at home first due to the Lockdown for coronavirus pandemic, then as a result of the prolonged strike enacted by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Nigerian university students will be returning to classrooms by January 2021.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige said Monday that the federal government has met 98% of the demands of the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, assuring Nigerians that the nation’s universities are likely to reopen by January next year.
He said: “We have met about 98 percent of the request of ASUU. The remaining two percent is what you can call promissory notes.
So, I am very hopeful that by midnight Tuesday, there is work we are supposed to get on to do and ASUU members also have some work they are supposed to do on their own side with their people.
We will disagree to agree and agree to disagree formerly. But I hope we will agree to agree. Once we do that, schools will open in January.”
