The agreement reached during the meeting was signed officially by both the union and the Nigerian government.
The Academic activities have been mandated to commenced tomorrow being Friday and the students are hereby encouraged to go back to school with immediate effect..
The Academic Staff of Union of University suspended the ongoing strike because the agreement reached partially by the Nigerian Government.
