There are indications that the long-awaited ASUU strike could end anytime soon if the union suspends the strike.
The Federal Government has approved an additional N100 billion for the university sector as part of the understanding in the renegotiation of the 2009 agreement.
In addition, N50 billion was equally approved to be shared by the university-based unions as earned allowances.
Although ASUU said on Thursday that it will not end its strike until the arrears of salaries of its members are paid.
The university lecturers also said that they will not teach students to make up for the six months they are on strike if the Federal Government failed to pay for the “strike period”.
In recent weeks, ASUU has been in talks with the federal government which usually ends in deadlock.
Indications emerged yesterday that ASUU may consider the option of suspending the strike.
The union will meet on Monday next week to discuss FG offers and available options.
