The Minister made it known that at its last meeting, the union agreed to call off the nine-month-old strike before December 9.

Recall that ASUU president, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi had blamed the FG for the union’s failure to call off the strike.

He noted that the lecturers would not return to classes until their salary arrears were paid.

Ngige in his reaction on Tuesday stated that the statement was false and discomfiting for ASUU to wrongly inform the public that the government agreed to pay all withheld salaries before it will resume work.

He stressed that the timelines attached to the various offers made to the union had been complied with.

The minister further stated that he had reached out to the Minister of Education on getting a waiver on the issue of ‘No Work, No Pay’ under section 43 of the Trade Disputes Act.New Minimum Wage To Be Implemented Immediately - FGPhoto Credit: Getty
