After months of the tussle between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) over Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), the union on Wednesday, December 23, called off its strike which started in March 2020.
The national president of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, made the announcement during a briefing of the union in Abuja, explaining that the development followed consultations with its National Executive Council (NEC).
The union shared the message on its Twitter handle. It read:
Ogunyemi added that the ASUU expresses joy on how the federal government handled the negotiation process, adding that they would be having their own executive meeting to conclude and get back to the government within 24hrs.
