The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it would end the ongoing strike if the Federal Government meets up with its fresh conditions.
Speaking on Channels TV on Wednesday, ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke said the six-month-long academic strike will come to an end if the government exhibits transparency.
According to him,“Government should tell us and Nigerians – the money that has been alleged to have been approved for revitalisation – how much is it and where is it lodged? When will it be released?” Osodeke said.
Osodeke added that the government must clearly state its position on the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), a payroll system that ASUU wants as a replacement for the Integrated Payroll and Personnel information system (IPPIS).
“Three, have they accepted the agreement we reached with their panel? They should come and tell us this, and not go to the press,” Osodeke added.
“Strike is a symptom of a problem. Any day you sort out that problem, you will not have strike.”
ASUU has been on strike since February 14, 2022.
