The Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (CVCNU) has reiterated the need for the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to resolve lingering issues to end the ongoing strike.
Chairman of the committee, Samuel Edoumiekumo, said both parties need to agree to end the strike as soon as possible.
His words: “We have already given a press release from the meeting of the general assembly of the committee. We said ASUU and Federal Government should amicably resolve all lingering issues,” he said.
Edoumiekumo urged them to honour agreements for academic activities to commence in the affected universities.
The vice chancellor of Niger-Delta university expressed optimism that the issues would be resolved soon.
Meanwhile the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has extended its ongoing warning strike by 12 weeks as President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime fails to accede to the union’s demands.
