ASUU president, Emmanuel Osodeke represented the union while Goodluck Opiah, the Minister of State for Education, stood as the representative for the Federal Government.

Femi Gbajabiamila, who was present at the meeting, disclosed that indeed an agreement was reached but he did not state the agreement.

Further confirming the development, the President of ASUU, Emmanuel Osodeke revealed the strike would be resolved soon.
