The Union has been on strike since February, to protest non-implementation of years old of an agreement they reached with the Federal Government.

However, ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke, said while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday night, that they are ready to end the strike.

According to him, ASUU’s insistence on using their own generated payment platform, University Transparency Accountability Solution (UTAS), instead of IPPIS, is a key demand.

“As far as ASUU is concerned, the strike can end tomorrow. We have finished the negotiation. If the government calls us now to come and sign the agreement, we will be there tomorrow.

“Let the government tell us they have finished testing the UTAS and we have accepted it, then we will call off the strike.

“When will they sign the agreement? When will they accept UTAS? Those are the two questions we should ask the Nigerian government,” Osodeke said.
