Malam Adamu said: “Possibly by upcoming week I believe the ASUU strike will be over.”
Conversely, when contacted, the ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, said the union was still talking on whether to end the strike or not. According to him, the union wants to take stock of what government have promised.
He replied: “everything I can say, for now, is that we are still consulting. We need to take supply of government’s promises in terms of aspects that have been fulfilled and what is left. We hope to get back to them in the coming week.”
He was still hopeful that a resolution would be reached when ASUU and the FG would be meeting during the week.
