ASUU strike nears its end

It appears the ongoing ASUU strike will soon come to an end as the Federal Government is putting final touches to meeting some reasonable demands of ASUU as both parties are said to have reached an understanding.

It is reported that the FG is determined to end the ongoing strike action in less than two weeks.

A Government source was quoted saying;

“On our part, we have been working round the clock to end the strike, which we are hopeful will end within a week or two at the most.

“I can confirm to you that government has already agreed to meet some of the reasonable demands of ASUU like the reconstitution of boards and councils and the issue of the legal framework regarding the retirement age of Professors and the like. We are making reasonable progress.”

Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie also confirmed the development saying that both parties were looking forward to ending the dispute.


  1. this is a welcome development…but the question while the long action this was a very simple issue the govt only made a mountain out of a mole hill. PRESIDENT JONATHAN & the arms of govt were only endangering our educational sector. lets see the revealation of the whole drama

  2. If d govt has finally made up its mind to heed to d request of Asuu,then it shud be granted without a pull-up.i dnt see any reason why education shud be put as d least in d scale of preference of our country,9geria.we students ar also bein affected -vely by d continuos strike actions.we thank d govt all d same for dia timely intervention…we hop & pray dat d success of education in Nigeria as it has started,wil hav no setback. Tanx to Asuu for dia long & die-hard strife….

  3. First and foremost, I must tnk Asuu and FGN for this latest development. I think I̶̲̥̅̊t̶̲̥̅̊’s time for †ђξ govt τ̅☺ take †ђξ education sector as important as they A̶̲̥̅rε̲̣̣̣̥ taking †ђξ issue of †ђξ economy (esp: fuel subsidy).they should ensure that education is given gr8t importance too. I want τ̅☺ say thank you to Asuu once again for their enormous work. A̶̲̥̅̊m̶̲̥̅̊ looking forward to seeing that Nigeria education will out grow this opting of education(strike)like in †ђξ western education that we all A̶̲̥̅rε̲̣̣̣̥ immitating or emulating…

  4. 10x 2 ASUU & FG for keepin us waitin cox it’s seen clearly dat educatN in Nigeria ar alwez @ risk, a course of 4 yrs can b changed by d situatN of strick 2 5yrs. Plz & plzz let d govt put educatN first in their agenda. Dats al i ask, al d sem tnks 4 recognising us. So sch here i com

  5. Federal Government should do something very urgent about asuu’s strike.what could be the reasons behind such motives for a great nation like Nigeria to closed down it universities and abandon educational system for more than 2 months. I think Nigerian Government should show regard and attach a great importance to the committment which every university entails.

  6. Ending d strike is one thing and doing somting tangible to avoid reoccurence should be consider d most important by both ASSU and d FG, i pray 4 d issue of strike to be laid to rest in d nigerian educational system. Long live d FG! Long live d ASUU! and Long live d nigerian students!

  7. just prepare your minds 4 resumption cos all federal universities will resume from the 6th of February, 2012 while final year/continuing education students who have not completed their projects/examination may have to resume as early as 25th of January,2012. The strike will be called off on tuesday, 24th January,2012.
