Three months after going on strike, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it is still consulting with its members over offers made by the federal government. The union’s national president, Biodun Ogunyemi, told newsmen today in Lagos that ASUU would meet with officials of the government within the week.
According to him, the government has made some offers in the course of meetings with ASUU which are still being deliberated on. Ogunyemi said that by the time the union is fully aware of what is left of its demands from what the government is offering, then it will know what steps to take, even as negotiations with the government continues.
Mr Ogunyemi said ASUU is expected to be involved in another round of meeting with the government within the week, adding that he expects a positive outcome. The university teachers have been on strike since November 4, 2018, over alleged non-implementation of agreements it entered into with the federal government in 2009 and 2017.
