ASUU set to end nine-month-old strike

36

The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday gave the indication that it was set to end its nine-month-old strike.

In a tweet, it said the Nigerian government had already started paying the withheld salaries of university lecturers.

This had been a sore point in negotiations between both sides.

A tweet on its handle reads: “#Good_News: Strike to be suspended as FG begins payment of withheld salaries of striking lecturers.

#ASUU”
