The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has given the Federal Government the condition to be met for the union to call off the ongoing strike.

The President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke during an interview with Channels TV on Monday evening said the union would call off its prolonged strike immediately if the government agreed to accept the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as the payment platform for its members' salaries.

“As far as ASUU is concerned, the strike can end tomorrow, we have finished the negotiations, let the government call us this night, that we should come tomorrow and sign the agreement, we will be there.”

“Let government tell us they have tested and accepted UTAS, we will call off the strike," he maintained.

Osodeke added that ASUU was done negotiating with the government and was waiting for its response. 

“We are finished (with negotiations). We are just waiting, and challenging the government… when will they sign the agreement, and when will they accept UTAS? Those are the 2 questions we need to ask the Nigerian government,” he added.

Prof. Osodeke stated that ASUU wants the best for Nigerian students, comparing them with those in Ghana and South Africa.

“What we want for Nigerian children, go round and see, and compare with Ghana or South Africa and compare them, that is our struggle,” he further noted.

ASUU went on strike on February 14, 2022, to reiterate its demands including the acceptance of UTAS by the federal government as the payment platform for its members.
