The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, hinted in Onitsha, Anambra State, that ASUU might call off the strike, while he was speaking to the reporters.
According to Ngige, the issues that made ASUU to embark on strike were based on agreement which the union entered into with the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, which the administration failed to implement before President Muhammadu Buhari took over power.
According to the minister, the Buhari administration is labour-friendly and is always concerned about the welfare of the nation’s workforce.
Ngige said that the Federal Government would make necessary efforts to ensure the strike is called off this January.
He revealed that the funds to meet most of the demands of the Union has been provided.
