Strike To End At Last As ASUU Signs MoU With FG

The lingering strike by university lecturers under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universitiesn ASUU, seem certain to end very soon, as members of the union today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with officials of the federal government of Nigeria.

The federal rescinded its decision to sack lecturers who failed to resume by December 9, after the lecturers defied the government and stayed away from work beyond the deadline.

Speaking to Saharareporters over the phone, ASUU president Dr. Nasir Fagge said that the MoU signing took place at the Ministry of Education in Abuja. The Permanent Secretary at the ministry signed on behalf of the federal government while the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress  Abdul Omar witnessed the event.

The ASUU president said the Nigerian government agreed to fulfill most of the obligations agreed upon during meetings with President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja a few weeks ago, including a non-victimization clause.

ASUU will now call a meeting of its National Executive Council to take a look at the MoU and decide on the next line of action within the next week.

The federal government, in a show of commitment, will set up a committee to fully implement the agreement with ASUU.

If u think killing the future of Nigeria does not have repercussion on you, then the Lord is there to judge. We should always try to play our roles being it a leader or a follower. May Allah Bless Nigeria.
