The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has promised to review the ongoing two weeks warning strike following the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila.
The National President of ASUU, Prof. Abiodun Ogunyemi, made this known at a meeting with the speaker at the National Assembly Complex on Thursday in Abuja, which was aimed at halting the strike.
He said that the union would consult with its various structures across different universities in the country and get back to the speaker “early next week”.
He said that Nigerian students should not be allowed to face disruption in their academic pursuits.
On the agreement reached between ASUU and the Federal Government in 2009, Gbajabiamila said he wondered why the government could not meet its commitment for more than 10 years after it signed the document.
On the IPPIS policy, Gbajabiamila appealed to the union to bend over backwards and support any government efforts at fighting corruption in the country.
