ASUU agrees to call off strike

The Union of Academic Personnel of Universities has agreed to call its eight-month strike that has cemented academic activity in public universities.

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

The government also pledged to increase the total pay to the union to 70 billion naira.

This occurs a week after the Federal Government accepted the ASUU’s demand to be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
