Ahead of the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, various zones of ASUU had met also to consider the offer, as well as inputs from the various branches.
ASUU had embarked on an indefinite strike on August 14, accusing government of failure to redeem the terms of agreement signed in 2009 and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) endorsed by both parties in 2012.
”Many of our members are not happy with the way government is handling our demands. It is up to NEC to take a position on the on-going strike. Our members are prepared for a long strike, but it depends on the government,” One of the zonal coordinators of ASUU told Saturday Sun.
He also denied claims made by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, that the union would call off the strike this week.
“We didn’t promise the minister anything. We told the government team that we are going to consult with our members on what government has offered,” he added.
