After nine months of the showdown between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU)

over Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), the union on Wednesday, December 23,

called off its strike which began in March 2020.

 

ASUU National President, Biodun Ogunyemi, made the announcement during a press briefing in Abuja.

 

He said:

“Academic Staff Union of Universities – and Nigeria (federal government) has finally agreed on major issues

that will lead to termination of its 10 month old strike.”

 

He also added that ASUU expresses joy on how the federal government handled the negotiation process, adding

that they would be having their own executive meeting to conclude and get back to the government within 24hrs.

 

Ogunyemi also warned that the union would return to strike without notice if the government fails in meeting its part of the agreement reached with the university lecturers.

The Union chairman, however, stated that the reopening of the schools, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, lies with the Federal Government and Senate.
