The Strike by the academic Staff union of Universities (ASUU) will soon be called off, after the union reached an agreement with The federal Government.
The federal government agreed to release with immediate effect about N220 billion to the universities to fund the revitalization of the federal institutions.
This agreement was reached in a 15 hour meeting in Abuja between the union’s representatives and Government officials led by the labour minister. The sum is expected to be paid not later than next month.
The Nation reports.
The money is to enable the institutions buy working tools needed for effective discharge of their responsibilities.
