ASUU strike:Union, F.G to resume negotiations today

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will today, meet with the federal government to continue deliberations on its demands.

The union is insisting that until certain conditions are met by government, its members will not return to work.

ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi who spoke with reporters in Ibadan, Oyo State ahead of today’s meeting, said government must show concrete evidence of the payment of at least N50 billion revitalisation fund.

Another condition attached to the suspension of the strike is “the presentation of concrete evidences of the payment of the promised N20 billion earned academic allowances and showing how the balance of N85 billion will be paid with timelines”.

The union is asking government to mainstream the earned academic allowances into the 2019 budget, which is still being worked on by the National Assembly.
