Human rights lawyer – Femi Falana – has said the Academic Staff Union of Universities – ASUU – is ready to call off the industrial action it embarked upon five months ago.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) stated this in a press release Thursday, calling on the federal government to meet the demands of the teachers and end the strike which commenced on Valentine’s Day .

This comes after Falana called on the federal government three days ago to submit a supplementary budget to appropriate N200bn to revamp federal universities across Nigeria.

“Based on our consultation with the leadership of ASUU, we have confirmed that the entire members of ASUU are prepared to call off the strike as soon as the FG/ASUU Renegotiated Agreement is executed by the Federal Government,” Falana said.

“In this circumstance, we are compelled to call on President Buhari to end the industrial action by directing the Minister of Education, Mr. Adamu Adamu to execute the Renegotiated Agreement. The Agreement should be executed as soon as possible in the public interest.”
