This was disclosed by Mr. Gbajabiamila on Monday following a private meeting between the union’s leadership and the MPs at the National Assembly compound.

After the meeting, Mr. Gbajabiamila briefed the media and said that after two conversations between the president and the House leadership, Mr. Buhari had acceded to some demands made by professors.

“That meeting was even more productive than the initial one we had with him, and Mr. President had pledged to resolve the issue. I won’t discuss it right now, and he will reveal whatever it is on Tuesday, which is next week.

Emmanuel Osodeke, the president of ASUU, stated during his speech that the union’s leadership is hoping to reach an agreement with the federal government and then select the next course of action after consulting with its members.

In his words, the agreement should be ready in 48 hours.

According to him, the ASUU leadership is unable to announce any agreements without the members’ approval.

In the speaker’s office, we only briefly met. What they covered has been noted by us. As you are aware, my union follows a bottom-up philosophy and never makes decisions on members’ behalf without their permission.
