The Committee of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities has reiterated the need for the Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities to resolve lingering issues to end the ongoing strike.



The Chairman of the committee, Prof. Samuel Edoumiekumo, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

Edoumiekumo, who spoke on Sunday in Abuja, said it was crucial for both parties to come to an agreement to end the strike as soon as possible.

He urged them to honour agreements entered into for academic activities to commence in the affected universities.

He said: “We have already given a press release arising from the meeting of the general assembly of the committee."
“We said that ASUU and the Federal Government should amicably resolve all lingering issues.”

Edoumiekumo, who is the Vice Chancellor of Niger Delta University, expressed optimism that the issues would be resolved soon.

ASUU on February 14 embarked on a strike to press home some demands, including a call for the government to implement a Memorandum of Action signed in December 2020 on funding for the revitalisation of public universities.

Other demands are Earned Academic Allowances, renegotiation of the 2009 agreement and deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, among others.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, on Friday stated that the Federal Government and ASUU would resume negotiations this week.
