Here’s everything you need to know about ASUU latest news on resumption.

The question of when the ASUU strike will end is one of the most frequently asked.

The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) met on Tuesday, August 16 to discuss how they could end the strike, but the discussion ended without a decision.

Therefore, if you don’t understand what this means, it clearly shows that the public university lecturers’ six-month-old strike is expected to continue.

According to information obtained by MamdyNews.com, the academics on strike met with the Professor Nimi Briggs Committee on Tuesday at the National University Commission in Abuja in the hopes of breaking the ongoing strike.

According to a top ASUU member who requested anonymity and spoke to Channels Television, the Briggs renegotiation committee members did not present any new offers.

The committee begged the academics to cease their strike, the ASUU source claimed, assuring them that their issues would be taken into account in the 2023 budget.

The insider claims that the meeting, which began at 12 p.m., went on for about three hours without a decision being made.

What is ASUU demanding from FG?

ASUU started a four-week warning strike in the second week of February, which is on February 14th, 2022, on Valentine’s Day.

The union prolonged the strike by two more months on March 14 to give the Buhari led administration time to accede to all of its demands. On May 9, an extension of 12 weeks was declared.

The union has been on strike since May 9 and has vowed to continue doing so until its demands are granted.

The academic community wants a number of things, including better welfare, the revitalization of public universities, and academic autonomy.

The nonpayment of university revitalization funding, totaling around N1.1 trillion, is one issue that the academic community has with the federal government.

However, the Federal Government has claimed that it lacks the resources necessary to cover such a sum, noting the low oil prices experienced under the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

In 2009, an agreement was reached between ASUU and the federal government.
