In an effort to put an end to the strike that has lasted for so long between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the union (ASUU) have finally succumbed to the federal government’s offer to suspend the lingering strike.
Here are the contentious issues both parties agreed on as compiled by Encomium.ng.
* The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would accept the proposal presented by the Federal Government on its demands.
* The concrete proposal reached during the conciliatory meeting will be taken for consultations to its members and they would get back to the government after about a week when it would take its final decisions on whether to call off the strike or not.
*The two most important and contentious issues are the earned allowances and the revitalisation of university system. Though an agreement had been reached on one, the other is yet to be confirmed.
However, a memorandum of understanding was signed by both ASUU and the federal government during the meeting.
