The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, has said that Federal Government had met all conditions laid down by ASUU except the ‘no-work-no-pay’ policy which is the only condition delaying the truce with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
He stated this while featuring at the 47th Session of the State House Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Thursday.
The minister said ASUU had not called off the strike because of their demand that all salaries during the industrial action be paid, a request the minister said the government turned down.
He said other issues had been sorted out with the union.
Adamu, however, said that four of five unions in the tertiary institutions across the country had agreed to call off strike within the next one week, stressing that such decision can only be announced after meeting with their executives.
