If you or your wards are tired of the lengthy ASUU strike, there may be good news coming your way as the minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu hints at a possibility of an end in sight. The minister on Saturday said that there’s a likelihood of ending the strike within 24-48 hours following ‘breakthrough’ in talks between the Federal Government and the Academic union.
The minister stated this at a media conference held in Abuja, affirming that a mutual agreement between the striking university lecturers and the FG is expected to put an end to the strike.
According the the minister Adamu Adamu “…the strike will be called off from today or tomorrow and certainly, there won’t be strike next week.”
It will be noted that the ongoing ASUU strike started on the 5th of November 2018, when lecturers under the the ASUU (Academic Staff Union of Universities) umbrella failed to come to a mutual agreement with the federal government over demands unmet. The over 3 months strike put on hold the academic pursuits of students in many federal and state owned universities. Would come as a sort of relieve for students if the strike is called off and academic sessions begin ASAP. If the strike had been called off earlier, who knows, the BB Naija 2019 auditions might not have experienced such massive crowd.
