The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has finally agreed to call off its strike which has been going on for 8 months.
ASUU leadership agreed to call the strike off during a meeting with the government team led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, on Friday, Nov 27, in Abuja.
The Federal Government also pledged to increase the total payment to the union to N70 billion.
This comes one week after the FG accepted the demand by the ASUU that they be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
