The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the federal government appear to have reached a consensus that will bring to an end, the eight-month-old strike embarked upon by the university teachers.

Fedredsnews learnt that the leadership of ASUU and the government delegation led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, managed to reach a consensus during their meeting in Abuja, today.

The government reportedly pledged to increase the total payment to ASUU to N70 billion.

The federal government had also last week accepted the demand by the ASUU that its members should be exempted from the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
