ASUU suspends its eight month old strike

The Federal Government has agreed to pay outstanding payments dating back from February to June, 2020 using the GIFMIS payment platform.

A decision is expected to be made after today’s ASUU indoor meeting.

Nigerian University students are eager to get back to school after staying at home for close to eight months that includes the lockdown period.

However, this is not the first time that ASUU had gone on strike over unpaid salaries or allowances. A similar strike was held during former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration when they were on strike for eight months before a comprise was made.

This incessant strike actions over the years have badly affected the number of years a university student is supposed to complete his or her degree program and students are optimistic that the strike will be called off soon after the agreement reached between the Federal Government and ASUU.
