The Committee of Vice-Chancellors of Nigerian Universities (CVCNU) has called on the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to resolve lingering issues to end the ongoing strike.
The Chairman of the committee, Prof. Samuel Edoumiekumo, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.
He said it was crucial for both parties to come to an agreement to end the strike as soon as possible.
He urged them to honour agreements entered into for academic activities to commence in the affected universities.
“We have already given a press release arising from the meeting of the general assembly of the committee.
“We said that ASUU and the Federal Government should amicably resolve all lingering issues,” he said.
Edoumiekumo, who is the Vice-Chancellor of Niger Delta University, expressed optimism that the issues would be resolved soon.
