He said that ASUU would accept the proposal presented by the Federal Government on its demands.

“The concrete proposal reached during the conciliatory meeting will be taken back to our members at the National Executive Council, (NEC) for further deliberation.

“We will report back our position to the Federal Government in the next one week on whether to call off the strike or not,” he said.
