Benue state Governor, Gabriel Suswam disclosed this to newsmen on yesterday in Abuja after a meeting of ASUU with members of the committee on implementation of Needs Assessment Report to Nigerian Universities.

He said an agreement was reached on many of the issues under negotiation except the two concerning earned allowance and general university funding for infrastructure development.

Gov. Suswam who was inaugurated chairman of the committee by Sen. Anyim explained that after many hours of deliberation the meeting agreed on major issues except two.

“These are the outstanding issues, otherwise other issues have been agreed on and we believe that by next week we should be able to agree on all the issues and, probably, ASUU will call off the strike,” he said.

He said that the committee would also meet with ASUU on August 1, to address the issue of infrastructure deficit in universities, adding that the meeting would involve all the agencies funding projects in the universities.

“If you go into our universities you will agreed with me that there are a lot of infrastructure deficit; so, we have agreed that all the funding agencies will meet with ASUU.” he stated.
