ASUU President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke

The Federal government has invited leaders of the Academic Staff Union of Universities to talks in Abuja today, as the union ended its two-month warning strike.

Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige on Friday said there will be a meeting today, Monday to discuss pending issues.

However, the National President of ASUU, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke said that the union has not received any invitation from the government and slammed the government as unserious.

Today marks the end of the two month warning strike by the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU).

The association has threatened to embark on an indefinite strike if the Federal Government refuses to meet all demands.

This was disclosed on Sunday by the union as its National Executive Council met in Abuja.

As part of its demands, ASUU wants the release of revitalization funds for universities and renegotiation and implementation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement.

Also, the Federal Government is required to release earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the UTAS payment platform for the payment of remuneration of university lecturers.
