The Academic Staff Union of Universities is to sit with with the Federal Government of Nigeria meet this week over the ongoing strike by the union..
The union had earlier over the weekend to decode whether or not to call off the strike.
The FG had during the meeting with ASUU leadership in Abuja offered to pay N23bn and a monthly payment of N1.5bn pending the outcome of the forensic audit being carried out by the Ministry of Finance.
According to a source, “The ASUU meeting which held last Saturday at UniAbuja discussed the offers made by the government and whether the strike should be called off on the basis of the offers made by the government.
“It was decided that ASUU might seek an audience with the government this week to negotiate further concessions before the strike is called off.”
