The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has expressed hope of students that it is close to calling off the ongoing strike action that has lasted for over three months.

On Monday, ASUU made a demand that will force it to immediately end the strike that caused many Nigerian public universities to close.

The current strike could be ended if the federal government accepted the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) payment platform, according to Prof. Emmanuel Osedeke, president of ASUU.

On Monday night, Osedeke said on Channels Television that the strike would go on until the government honoured the 2009 agreement and accepted UTAS.

We will end the strike tomorrow if the government notifies us that they have completed testing the UTAS and signs the agreement, according to Osedeke.

“We ask the government: When will they ratify the deal? When will they start accepting UTAS? The Nigerian government should be asked these two questions.

According to the ASUU president, their demands are in the best interests of Nigerian students who are studying in unfavourable conditions.

“Go to South Africa or Ghana and see if you can compare them; that is our struggle; we refer to ourselves as the giants of Africa.

“We will end the strike as soon as the government signs the agreement,” the workers said.

Due to the federal government’s refusal to abide by the contract it signed with the union in 2009, ASUU and the federal government have been at odds for more than three years.

One of the demands in the agreements is that the terms of service for university lecturers be reviewed every five years, that salaries and benefits be given, that public universities be revitalised, that the University Transparency Accountability Solution be implemented, and that alleged inconsistencies in the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) payment platform, which the government insists will be used to pay lecturers, be addressed.
