Published

on

Worried by the shutdown of the nation’s universities for about eight months, governors have asked the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to shift grounds.

They are pleading with the Federal Government to create a temporary salary payment window pending the outcome of the ongoing testing of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS), recommended by ASUU.

The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA is already subjecting UTAS to test.

It was learnt that the governors have met with some past leaders of ASUU on how to end the strike on mutual terms.

ASUU has been on strike since March 23, leading to a near loss of 2019/2020 academic session.

The nation’s varsities may also record admission backlogs, should the crisis persist beyond December.

According to investigation, the governors are disturbed by the consequences of the continued closure of the universities on the future of younger generation.
