The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU says strike is not imminent, if the Federal Government implements the agreements reached, in the next two weeks.

ASUU President Emmanuel Osodeke, who made the assertion in Abuja, explained that none of the agreements reached with the Federal Government had been implemented. He said some of the demands included the non-implementation of the 2009 re-negotiated agreements, adding that the agreements had lingered for over six years and government was yet to implement them.

The ASUU leader lamented that the academic allowances due to their members had also accumulated for over six years and nothing had been done about it.

It would be recalled that ASUU had threatened to embark on strike over the non-implementation of agreements reached with the federal government.

Minister of Education, Tahir Mamman had on June 26, invited the union for a meeting to deliberate on the lingering issues affecting universities and to avert the planned strike.
