ASUU strike: Zonal leaders to discuss Federal Government’s offer

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will meet today, to deliberate on the offers made by the Federal Government last Thursday in Abuja.

At the meeting, the members would decide whether or not to accept the offers made.

The union would also take a position on the ongoing strike, which had paralysed academic activities in state and federal universities all around the country.

The Chairman, UNIABUJA chapter of ASUU, Dr. Ben Ugheoke, confirmed that the union would hold a crucial meeting on the labour action.

Ugheoke explained that after the zonal meetings, the decisions would then be communicated to the national executive council of the union, which would take a final position on the issues.

The FG last week offered to pay N23bn and N1.5bn monthly, pending the outcome of the forensic audit being carried out by the Ministry of Finance.

The government had also yielded to other demands by the ASUU leadership led by its President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, Vice-President, Emmanuel Osodeke and a former union president, Dr. Dipo Fashina.
