The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it can end its strike and resume on Tuesday, July 5, if the federal government accepts the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) and addresses other concerns..



ASUU national president, Professor Emmanuel Osedeke, said this while speaking on Channels Television on Monday night, July 4.

He, however, said the strike will continue unless government accept UTAS and honour the 2009 agreement.

The lecturers’ union has been at loggerheads with the federal government, citing the refusal of the latter to honour the 2009 agreement it entered with the Union.

Its demands in the agreements include the condition of service of University lecturers to be reviewed every five years, issue of salaries and allowances, and revitalisation of public universities, among other issues.

The lecturers also want UTAS to be adopted as the payment platform for their salaries in place of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

*OSODEKE SAID: “LET GOVERNMENT TELL US THEY HAVE FINISHED TESTING THE UTAS AND SIGN THE AGREEMENT, THEN TOMORROW WE WILL CALL OFF THE STRIKE.
