The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has expressed readiness to call off their industrial action if the federal government meets their demands.

Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU President, disclosed this on Monday night when he appeared on Channels Television’s Politics Today.

The ASUU President stated that although an agreement has been reached with the government, the document is yet to be assented to by both parties.

Osodeke said the union’s insistence on the deployment of their self-generated University Transparency Accountability Solution, UTAS, as a payment platform forms a key part of the negotiation.

He said, “As far as ASUU is concerned, the strike can end tomorrow.

“We have finished the negotiation. If the government calls us now to come and sign the agreement, we will be there tomorrow.

“Let the government tell us they have finished testing the UTAS and we have accepted it, then we will call off the strike.

“When will they sign the agreement? When will they accept UTAS? Those are the two questions we should ask the Nigerian government,” Osodeke said.
