The national president of the Academic Staff Universities Union (ASUU), Emmanuel Osodeke, on Thursday, September 15, said that the union is willing to end its call off its seven-month-old strike action.

Vanguard reports warned that calling off the ASUU strike said this could only be achieved if all the concrete agreements were reached with the Federal Government.

Speaking at a National Town Hall Meeting on Tertiary Education tagged: ‘The Locked Gates of our Citadels - A National Emergency.’

A change of heart from the Federal Government Osodeke also urged the Nigerian government to have a change of heart for the sake of Nigerian students who have remained at home for the past seven months.

His words: “If the government loves this country, these children and their parents, then they should come to the table and let us resolve these issues in one day.

“Just as we did in 2014, they should come and ensure that we do that, we can even have the meeting openly so that Nigeria will see what we are discussing."
