ASUU To Decide Today
a breakthrough came in the prolonged industrial impasse when the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to which ASUU is affiliated brokered a deal between the Federal Government and the union. At the truce meeting witnessed by the President of the NLC, Abdulwahed Omar, the Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike and Permanent Secretary of the ministry, MacJohn Nwaobiala, among other stakeholders, ASUU and the Federal Government entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) detailing that none of the striking lecturers would be subjected to victimisation as a result of the strike.
The MoU, which ASUU’s President, Nasir Fagge would be presenting before the NEC members today for further deliberation as a prelude to ending the almost six months strike, also detailed how the N200billion deposited with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) by government would be disbursed among the universities.
