The local chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) stated this on Tuesday following an appeal by the government that it should suspend its strike.

According to the chapter Chairman of the union, Dr Reuben Jonathan, the three-month-old strike will only end when the government provides money for it to clear the N100 million cheque the immediate past administration issued to the union in March.

Jonathan accused past government of insincerity and lack of commitment, promising to suspend the strike as soon as the present administration of Governor Darius Ishaku meets part of their demands while negotiations continue.

The union boss added that the strike was for genuine reasons, not without consideration of students' welfare as is being alleged
