Finally ASUU Signs Agreement With FG, Calls Off Strike ...

Technically, the ASUU strike has come to an end as government has finally done the needful...
The Federal Government and the leadership of ASUU led by its President, Dr. Nasir Fagge, has signed the much talked about Memoradum of Understanding on the restructured 2009 Agreement, on Wednesday.

ASUU President, Dr. Fagge said the document signed would be presented to the union to take an affirmative and positive stand on the suspension of the 5 months old industrial action. He said with the signing of the MOU the 5month old strike would come to an end in approximately one week from now...

In the words of the ASUU President:
"This is the response to the letter we wrote to Mr. President and this document would now be forwarded to our members and our members would give us direction. We are hoping that we would be able to meet with our members in less than a week.

"I don’t have the power to call off the industrial action, it is only our members that can do that. And our members gave us a message to give to the Federal Government which we have done and within one week our members would meet. We already have the document which shows that Government is committed”.

The ASUU President said the development and revitalization of Nigeria’s education sector is for our benefit. 

“It is never too late for the nation to turn a new leaf and do what is right. Other countries that are smaller and less powerful than Nigeria have done it and have succeeded. It is rather unfortunate that Nigeria is not close to some of these smaller nations around us. It is now, we must properly fund our universities, we have lost lot of capital to nations like Ghana and Togo”, Fagge said.

He therefore assured Nigerians that ASUU would not take long in ensuring that the right thing is done.
