The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has revealed that they have reached an agreement with the Federal Government of Nigeria concerning their withheld salaries.
This was after they met with representatives of the federal government today. Taking to their official Twitter handle, they wrote;
“#Updated (Outcome of Friday Meeting)
The Negotiation between FG and #ASUU today yielded very good results.
The government has agreed to use the old platform before #IPPIS, to pay all withheld salaries.
UTAS is still undergoing usability test.
On revitalization, the government offered N15billion in addition to the N20billion pledged earlier.
#ASUU would now consult with its council and then get back to the government in a short while, to make their final intention known; if the strike will be suspended or not.
