See What Happened After ASUU Chairman Met With FG

ASUU Strike: We Are yet to Reach Agreement with Buhari Govt: Prof. Ogunyemi

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU which are responsible for the academics session of Nigerian students, on Wednesday declared that it was yet to reach an agreement with the Federal Government over the lingering strike.

President of ASUU, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, said that the negotiations between the federal government and the union was still inconclusive.

According to prof. Ogunyemi, the team that represented the union at the meeting with representatives of government had no final say over calling off the strike action.
He said that each time they had a meeting with the Federal government, it never ends well. 

Speaking with Tribune Press, Ogunyemi said:
It was just yesterday that the government sent the proposal to us without waiting for feedback before going to the public that we have reached an agreement. 
ASUU does not operate in that manner.

“The ASUU team that met the Federal Government would have to consult our principal over the proposal which we are already doing.

“So, ASUU cannot make a pronouncement on a mere proposal. 
Until our principal agrees, there is no agreement. 
And that is what we have always emphasised to government that we are going to consult our members and if after consultation, our members think the proposal is good enough, we will get back to government and tell them that now, we have taken a decision which becomes an agreement.

“But so far on government proposal, we have not taken a decision. And our strike is still ongoing.
