The Federal Government has assured that the strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will soon be resolved.

It also assured that academic activities will soon resume in earnest while denying the allegation that it was planning to create a different payment table for ASUU.

This much was revealed by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, while fielding questions from State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Council Chamber, presidential villa, Abuja.

According to the minister, the government was interested in seeing tertiary students going back to school.

Ngige said that the meeting on Thursday is expected to look at the progress report by the relevant bodies handling the crisis, including NITDA on how far it has gone with the integrity test on the University Transparency and Accountability System, (UTAS).

Recall that UTAS was proposed as an alternative platform by ASUU, while the University Peculiar Personnel and Payroll System, U3PS was proposed by SSANU and NASU.

The minister said that he was waiting for the report of the Tripartite Plus Committee comprising the Ministry of Education, the Chief of Staff, Salaries and Wages Income Commission, the National University Commission, NUC, and the striking unions.
