The statement reads: “ASUP has made a remarkable difference at a time the usual practice is for striking unions to deny that government has moved a needle in implementing agreements reached at negotiations.

“This union did not only acknowledge the efforts of the Federal Government, it painstakingly also listed the demands which government has met, while expressing optimism that the rest would similarly be resolved. This is the way to go, a commendable act which other unions in the Education sector must copy, moving forward, in holistic resolution of the challenges facing higher education.”

Ngige assured ASUP that the government would not relent in its efforts until all outstanding issues were sorted out.
