ASUU Hopeful of End to Strike in a matter of days

President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Emmanuel Osodeke, said that the union will soon call off its strike.

It is light at the end of tunnel indeed as ASUU may soon call off its 8-month long strike. Mr Osodeke said this in a meeting with the leadership of the House of Representative yesterday in Abuja.

Speaking on the outcome of the meeting, he said “this time around it is hoped that there would not be any persons or group to create issues that would make the union run into any hitch”.

The House of representative, led by Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila recently intervened in the dispute between the federal government and the Union over the eight-month long strike.

“if the National Assembly had intervened, if we had done that long ago, or those in charge of labour and education had done exactly this, we would not be where we are today. We would not have stayed home more than two or three weeks on this strike…. Thank you very much we hope that we can put an end to this strike”, said Osodeke.

Gbajabiamila said that the intervention was fruitful and the President’s decision will be made known public soon.
