A source told Newsmen saying:

The federal government has raised its offer to ASUU to N70 billion in total for Earned Academic Allowance and revitalization. ASUU said it will take the offer back to its members and get back to us.

They agreed not to let it (the agreement) out until they go and consult their people. ASUU gave the government December 4 to clear all the salary arrears.

Government said it will pay the backlog using the old system but that going forward, at the end of the day the University Transparency and Accountability Solution must be ready for them to use.

Government said it will not continue to use the old method to pay ASUU members. They are trying to get a timeframe within which UTAS can come onboard. Even UTAS has not been subjected to testing.

Recall that the academic union of universities, Asuu has been on strike for Eight months after initially going on strike on February 2020
