Strike: Why Nigerian Government Made U-turn On Reopening Of Universities

Facts have emerged on why the Federal Government reversed itself on the decision to reopen public universities despite the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

Vanguard gathered that pressure from opinion leaders and other stakeholders interested in resolving the face-off between the union and the government led to the government asking that the circular, earlier sent to mandate the reopening of the universities, be withdrawn.

“After the circular became public and people started interpreting what the consequences could be, it was agreed that the circular is withdrawn to also allow for more negotiation between the government and the union,” a source said.
