ASUU To Suspend 2013 Strike If 3 Conditions Are Met

The Academic Staff Union Of Universities, ASUU is setto call of the 5 months old strike after a scheduled meeting with the President today, IF the three conditions listed below are met.

Condition #1.Commitment from the President that any review or reconsideration or renegotiation of the 2009 Agreement will not substantially affect the pact which is the cause of the ongoing strike;

Condition #2.Immediate payment of all outstanding salary arrears and allowances of University Lecturers without victimization; and

Condition #3. A written commitment from the President that the Federal Government will commit N225billion annually to the funding of universities for the next four years.

There is a fourth condition, which is said to be “personal” to ASUU.


Our source said: “Our leaders are meeting with the President Today (Monday, November 25, 2013) to table these conditions. Once the President accepts these three terms, the strike will be called off.

“In principle, members voted about 60-40 per cent to call off the strike, but they added a caveat – that ASUU leaders should extract a commitment (signed and sealed) from the President.”

It became imperative for ASUU to makes these demands, as it became obvious that the FG wanted the 2009 Agreement to be renegotiated.

“If ASUU had accepted to renegotiate the entire Agreement , it means there will be no basis for the ongoing strike. The worst that can happen is either having the abridged version of the 2009 Agreement or a phased implementation of the document,” the source added.
