Shehu Sani, Ex-Kaduna Central Senator, has urged the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off the prolonged industrial action.
Sani was reacting to the latest decision reached by the Federal Government in a bid to pacify ASUU.
In an effort to end the seven months strike, the federal government had excluded academic staff from the Integrated Payroll and Personal Information System, IPPIS, payment system.
This was disclosed by Senator Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, while addressing reporters after a meeting with the leadership of ASUU in Abuja on Friday.
The Ex-Anambra Governor said the federal government had decided to shift grounds on the lingering issues, adding that an additional N15 billion for the revitalisation fund of public universities will be paid to the union.
According to Ngige, this money would make it a total of N35 billion committed as revitalisation fund by the government following the payment of N20 billion earlier.
However, Sani commended the federal government for its latest decision.
In a tweet, the Ex-lawmaker urged the union to consider federal government’s latest offer.
Sani tweeted: “The reported exclusion of ASUU from IPPIS and the provision of N65Billion, if true is commendable.
“Its the triumph of resilience and as an uncompromising supporter of ASUU, I call on the academics to consider this and restore their services. And no breach please.”
