Recall that at the last meeting between the Nimi Briggs led reconcilliation committee, ASUU officials made attempts to compel government to pay them their six months salaries as one of the conditions for suspending the strike.

But the Minister of Education Adamu Adamu had objected to such demand while featuring at a media interactive session coordinated by the Presidential Media Team in Abuja, recently.
