FG reveals when lecturers will return to classrooms in 2019Published on January 2, 2019 By Ifreke Inyang

The protracted strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may soon be called off.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, gave the hint in Onitsha, Anambra State, while speaking to reporters.

Ngige revealed that funds had been provided to meet most of the demands of the union.

He said the Federal Government would make necessary efforts to ensure that the strike comes to an end this January.

According to Ngige, the issues that made ASUU to embark on strike were based on agreement which the union entered into with the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, which the administration failed to implement before President Muhammadu Buhari took over power.

According to the minister, the Buhari administration is labour-friendly and is always concerned about the welfare of the nation’s workforce
