The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has called on the Federal Government to end the strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities and other university-based unions.
The NLC President, Mr Ayuba Wabba, made the call in his contributions to the report of the Director-General, International Labour Organisation, during the 110th International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland.
According to Wabba, the NLC has written to the Federal Government on how to end the universities’ workers strike.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that while the Federal Government continue to work on the demands of the unions, academic activities across all public universities have been suspended.
Wabba said that the NLC had written to President Muhammadu Buhari on how to use a high-powered delegation to end the strike.
He said that one of the main issues in contention was the deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, a salary payment platform developed by ASUU.
