Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie
The ASUU president has stated that he is optimistic the deadlock between it and the Federal Government would be resolved before mid-February.

Prof. Ukachukwu Awuzie said the government’s offers to the union being studied by stakeholders.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday that discussions were ongoing with the various stakeholders on the offers.

Awuzie said;

“The union is concerned about quick resolution of the issues and the resumption of academic activities in the universities.

“I am optimistic that the union will make its stand known before mid- February. We have taken the outcome of the Abuja meeting to the National Executive Committee of the union after which we shall also be taking it to our congress and various state branches.

“We are working on this seriously with all sense of urgency and the fact that we are consulting with all the stakeholders shows that we are interested in ending the strike within the shortest possible time.

ASUU embarked on an indefinite strike on December 5, 2010 over non- implementation of their 2009 agreement with the government.
