After series of protracted disputes and failed negotiations between Nigeria‘s Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Univerities (ASUU), the ASUU strike has finally been called off as of December 17, 2013.
The meeting was to look over an agreement signed by union leadership and the federal government last Wednesday, December 11, 2013.
The news of the decision to end the strike broke early Tuesday morning.
After months of negotiation, the agreement signaled the end of the strike would come soon, after Dr. Nasir Fagge, ASUU president, promised that a decision would come within a week after signing the agreement.
After a protracted debate, the Federal Government and ASUU reached a compromise during a negotiation brokered by the President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Abdulwaheed Omar few days ago.
