However, the education minister has formed a seven-member committee to investigate the agreement.
According to Ben Goong, the ministry’s spokesman, the committee will be inaugurated on Monday, 7th March 2022.
The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, will lead a team to renegotiate the agreement reached between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities in 2009, according to Goong.
