Asuu strike hasn't been called off!

The 84 days old Asuu strike has shown signs of coming to an end, but this can only happen if the Federal Government listens to the cry of Asuu, although they have offered the union something,the strike is still very on! 
The President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities , Prof Biodun Ogunyemi , has said the leadership of the union is still consulting its members on the Federal Government’ s offer .

He said the outcome of the consultations would determine what ASUU would be presenting to the government ’ s team during their next meeting within the week..
This is a good sign that we are close to the end of the strike...
But will Asuu accept the Federal Government's offer?
The Asuu chairman during an interview said said , “ All I can say for now is that we ’ re still consulting on the latest offer by the government . We hope to get back to them in the coming week . ”
He, however , said the government is yet to show enough commitment to warrant calling off the strike .
This is not sounding good...
Ogunyemi also said the leadership of ASUU had done enough to lower its demands from the Federal Government .
He was however hopeful that a resolution would be reached when ASUU and the FG would be meeting during the week .
According to him , while progress had been made in two areas of discussion , the government had yet to convince ASUU that it is ready to deal with the issue of the infrastructure revitalisation fund of N 220bn .
He said , “ Progress has been made on the issue of earned allowance but we need to meet our members on how the FG wants to pay the balance . We have agreed on the FG ’ s proposal to pay in instalments but we have to also agree on how much will be paid per instalment .
The Asuu strike is still on, let's hope it will be called off before the election.
