ASUU: Strike Will Be Called Off Next Week — Education Minister

The Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu has said the prolonged strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) would be called off next week.

Adamu made this assertion in Abuja while speaking with the Senate Committee on Tertiary Institutions and TETFund.

The minister said the executive arm of the government had begun schemes to make sure the demands of the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement are met.

Reacting to this, the Chairman of the Senate Committee, Jibrin Barau lauded the Minister of Education for his efforts in restoring peace between the federal government and ASUU and ensuring the industrial action is brought to an end.

Members of the ASUU commence their industrial action in February 2022 due to the inability of the federal government to meet their demands.
