The ongoing strike has been on for over eight months, and after the close doors of the Nigeria’s federal universities, its now look for reopening, latest by next week Friday, as the Academic Staff Union Of Universities (ASUU) plan to give the federal government it decision next week, after they must have discussed with major stakeholders about the matter discussed on Friday meeting with the federal government.
With the resolution of the dispute on the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) between both parties, which appears to be a major stumbling block to the conclusion of negotiation, its now looks like the coast it clear for ASUU to suspend its industrial action and fix a date for reopening of the federal universities, after the federal government has agreed to meet their demands.
According to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, the union of the striking lecturers are expected to go and relay the latest proposals to its organs and revert to government, so that the federal universities can be reopened by next week.
He added that the federal government had agreed to ASUU’s demand to pay their members salary arrears from February to June using the old salary payment platform, GIFIMS.
In the bid to end the ongoing strike and also meet with ASUU’s demand, the federal government have also accepted to wave the threat of “no work, no pay” and approve payment of salary arrears to the striking lecturers.
