FG Raises Fresh C’ttee To Tackle ASUU Strike



There appears to be a gleam of hope in resolving the indefinite strike called by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), as a fresh committee has just been constituted by the Federal Government to review the 2009 agreements and indeed the recent meeting, where government insisted on the ‘no work no pay’ rule to be applied against the striking lecturers.

Daily Independent got clues to this, following the meeting between the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu; Vice Chancellors and Pro-Chancellors of federal universities on Tuesday in Abuja, where a decision was reached to further review the Nimi Briggs report.

Recall that one of the conditions ASUU had given to end the strike which has lasted for over six months, while meeting with the Briggs committee recently, was for government to pay them arrears of salaries for the last six months, a development that didn’t go down well with the Federal Government.
