Asked when ASUU may likely return to the classrooms, he said: “I don’t know, but we are discussing with them.”
ASUU had twelve  days ago at the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA, Ondo State declared indefinite strike over the Federal Government refusal to honour its 2009 agreements it freely entered with the Union.
