But the government said it would never, again, go into any agreement it does not have the resources to implement.

Speaking at a meeting of Pro-Chancellors and Vice Chancellors of Federal Universities, held at the National Universities Commission (NUC), the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu said the government was determined to end the strike.

He highlighted various steps the government took to end the strike since February 14, when ASUU downed tools.

According to him, the Federal Government could only pay a “23.5 per cent salary increase for all categories of the workforce in federal universities, except for the professorial cadre, which will enjoy a 35 per cent upward review.”

He said the government was conscious of not signing an agreement it would later fail to fulfil in order to avoid “past mistakes”.

“In all we have been doing, our guide has been the directive of Mr President Muhammadu Buhari, namely, that while the unions should be persuaded to return to work, the government should not repeat the past mistakes of accepting to sign an agreement it will be unable to implement.
