The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Friday agreed to call off its eight-month long strike which has crippled activities in public universities across Nigeria.

According to PUNCH Newspapers, the union leadership reached the consensus during a meeting with the government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment,  Dr Chris Ngige, in Abuja.

 

The Nigerian Government also pledged to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.

The decision comes one week after they accepted the demand that the striking lecturers would be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, which was one of ASUU’s major demands.
