ASUU agrees to call off strike, payment to increase to N70bn
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has agreed to call of its eight-month industrial strike which has stranded academic activities in the public universities.
The union leadership reached the consensus during a meeting with the government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, in Abuja, on Friday.
The government also promised to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.
This is sequel to the exemption of ASUU from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) by the Federal Government , which is the primary demand of the association.
