The FG further agreed to settle the arrears of salaries of the lecturers before December 31.
FG pledged to pay N40 billion as the EAA and N30bn for the revitalization of the university system to bring the total to N70 billion.
ASUU is expected to report the agreement to its organs and then communicate their decision to the government after which a date for the calling off of the strike would be announced.
