The minister of labour and representative of ASUU have risen from a meeting. Both parties have agreed to put the on going ASUU strike on hold inorder to give the federal government time to sort out the subsidy issue with NLC. FG has agreed to meet some of ASUU's demands.

According to him, the Federal Government has released N15.4 billion for the payment of the salary shortfalls, which was one of the major demands of the union.

But, reacting, the ASUU president said the strike will only be called off after the union reviewed its decisions based on the new commitment by the Federal Government.

He said the strike could only be called off after the NEC meeting. He, however, did not state when the NEC meeting will hold.
The lecturers have been on strike since November 4 to demand improved funding of universities.
