Senate on Tuesday waded into proposed strike by Academic Staff Universities Union over failure of Federal government to comply with 2009 agreement.
ASUU had signed agreement with Federal government in 2009.
Part of the agreement dwelt on funding of universities where both parties agreed that each federal university should get at least N1.5 trillion between 2009 and 2011 while state universities, within the same period, should receive N3.6 million per student.
But, due to failure of the government to comply with the agreement, the ASUU called for one week warning strike.
However, Senate decision to avert the strike was a point of order raised by Jubril Barua on impeding strike of the Union.
