On Wednesday, The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, gave Federal government conditions for its members to call off the strike.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU President, said University lecturers would return to classes when the government provides a conducive teaching environment in line with COVID-19 protocols.
Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in Abuja after calling off the nine-month strike.
Representatives of both the federal government and ASUU had met to strengthen out agreements reached.
However, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi said, “We usually said we did not close the universities, the government remains the universities’ owner, be it state or federal.
“As far as we are concerned, we are ready to resume classes. But the government should make the environment conducive for us to work within the context of the emerging trend of COVID-19.
“So, we can’t tell the government not to open, but we have the right to insist that the COVID-19 protocols should be observed and the requirements for observing the protocols should be met.”
