The Academic Staff Union of Universities has commended the House of Representatives for its intervention in the protracted crisis between the lecturers and the federal government saying there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
The federal government and ASUU have been at loggerheads since February 14 over demands of proper funding of the university educational system to meet international standard.
The President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, said, “For the first time, we have seen light at the end of the tunnel.”
This is just as the Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila, who briefs the leadership of ASUU about his meetings with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), over the crisis, said he expected that the strike would be called off “in matter of days.”
