Striking lecturers  in the nation’s universities will resume academic activities this week.

The high expectation is informed by positive developments in the talks  between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

The government  offered ASUU N35 billion as a show of its commitment to ending the strike.

The minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, while briefing journalists after the meeting with ASUU leadership, said that on the issue of salary shortfall, the Ministry of Fnance has provided facts that they remitted the sum of N15.3 billion to accommodate payment of the shortfall that has been verified.

On earned allowances, Ngige said that the ministry showed evidence that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the sum of N20billion to be used to offset the arrears of the 2009 to 2012 audit verified earnings of the university system.

According to Ngige, the aggregate amount for the earned allowance is N120billion, but the government has approved the release of N20 billion and the balance would be paid in tranches.

He therefore said that ASUU is expected  to take part of the resolution of the meeting to its members and get back to the government “so that we can reached a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) at least by Wednesday or Thursday.”

He said: “The Ministry of Finance and office of the accountant-general have provided us with evidence that on the 31st of December, 2018 before the expiration of the current aspect of 2018 budget that they remitted the sum of N15.389,940. This is to accommodate the payment of shortfalls in all the tertiary institutions that have been verified.ASUU Finally Calls Off Strike

@Iamnankpak “Kudos for your persistence thus far, we all plead that the ASUU executives and chapter chairpersons set to discuss the FG offer as fast as possible to allow students return to class.”

@DrAdibest “Can you all see the type of leaders we have? Where did that money come from? Did FG just print the notes today or yesterday? When some critics say the only language Nigerian gov understands is STIKE some will begin to argue. Our leaders don’t kno the economic value of time.”

@hammmeeed “Look at all this ASUU people, before they were talking as if they are fighting for us, now they have given them money now they still want to go and review. This is total wickedness to our future. My parent are suffering to send me to school and you are there wasting my time.”
