The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said the Federal Government has promised to get back to the union soon. 

Vanguard reports that ASUU has rendered its presentation to the Prof. Nimi Briggs-led committee, the committee set up for the renegotiation of the 2009 ASUU-FGN agreement.

In a phone conversation with Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, the National President of ASUU, the union's boss said: “We have made our presentation to the committee and there is nothing more to add."

Speaking on when to expect a response from the government, Osodeke mentioned: “They promised to get back to us within a short time.”

Prof. Briggs said his committee, also on a phone call with Vanguard said the committee had met with ASUU and had done what is expected of it.

“We have met and ASUU have made their presentation.

"Some people sent me on an errand and I have to report to them.

"The committee is not the final authority on this matter. We are not the ones to determine what will be done,” he said.

AllNews Nigeria reports that ASUU embarked on industrial action in February 2022 due to the Federal Government's failure to meet its demands including payment of Earned Academic Allowance and Revitalisation Fund of N200 billion, the adoption of University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as the payment platform in the university system and so on.
