We are willing to call off strike – ASUU
Written by City Radio on September 15, 2022
The President, Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke has said that the union is willing to end its seven-month old strike.
Osodeke, however, said this could only be achieved if concrete agreements were reached with the Federal Government.
Osodeke gave the assurance in Abuja on Thursday at a National Town Hall Meeting on Tertiary Education.
The Federal Government recently sued ASUU at the industrial court in an attempt to end the strike.
Osodeke, therefore, reiterated the union’s commitment to return to school if the Federal Government puts its proposal on the table, saying that negotiation could be reached if the government was willing.
Osodeke commended the Committee of Vice Chancellors and Pro-Chancellors for stepping in to resolve the issues
