The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, has said that the union will soon call off its eight-month-old strike. Osodeke said this at a meeting with the leadership of the House of Representatives on Monday in Abuja. He said that from what the union had seen at the meeting “there is light at the end of the tunnel. “This time around it is hoped that there would not be any persons or group to create issues that would make the union run into any hitch,” he said. He further hoped that the intervention by the leadership of the House would be the final for the sake of the students, adding that ASUU’s struggle was for the educational and university system in the country. “We hope that in the next few days, we will put an end to this strike. “We want to have a system where the remuneration is enough to attract lecturers all over the World to our universities,” Osodeke said. He said that Nigerian universities should also be paid in hard currencies for attracting foreign students while expressing worry over some good lecturers that were leaving the country.
