- ASUU made it known that the 10-month old will possibly be suspended as the federal government has commenced payment of withheld remunerations of the striking lecturers
Presented below are all what ASUU posted on its Twitter handle (@ASUUNGR) today:

NEW: The Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities has given the Federal Government a December ultimatum to implement the new minimum wage by releasing funds to clear the backlog of new minimum wage arrears due to her members or risk industrial unrest.
SSANU National President, Mohammed Ibrahim, who made the call in Yola, warned that another strike action by the union would be inevitable even if ASUU suspend their strike after today’s meeting.
It should be recalled that Nigerians had berated both the federal government and the University Union when the strike was six months old.
