Suswam, who is the chairman of the National Economic Empowerment Development Strategy Assessment Implementation Committee of the universities, spoke with journalists shortly after a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He said, “I want to say that we are having negotiation with ASUU. In the next one or two weeks, we should be able to arrive at something that will  necessitate them calling off the strike, once we are able to agree with them on all issues that they have raised.

“So far, there are only two outstanding issues, the NEEDS assessment and the earned allowances. The NEEDS assessment which I’m handling, we have virtually concluded. I think by next week, it will be definite.

“The earned allowance, the SGF is still holding meeting (with them), I believe that in the next one week, given the seriousness of the issue, we will be able to come to some level of agreement with ASUU, which will probably lead to calling off the strike. I am not saying they are calling off the strike, we have to agree on these two remaining issues.”

The governor said the committee he chairs will be meeting again with ASUU on Tuesday and that a sub-committee with ASUU inclusive had been set up to look at the NEEDS assessment document and get out some projects that the President will immediately inaugurate between now and September.

He said with the commitment by government to be releasing money every year, the nation’s universities would be given a new lease of life.

Suswam said the process would start with N1billion and that benefitting universities would be selected across the six geopolitical zones, where the President decides to launch any project. He added, “Already, we have called all the funding agencies and we have been holding meetings with them.

“What we are trying to do is that all the monies that agencies and  individual capacities be harnessed so that it will be well coordinated. Then we know that this is how much the Federal Government is spending on our institutions on a yearly basis, as it is now. But as things are now, nobody knows apart from the budgetary money, which is passed by the National Assembly. Nobody actually captures what is being expended by TETFund, NITTDA, CBN amongst others.
