Ngige said that the Ministry of Education would be represented by three people, ASUU by three members, while government would be represented by one person who would serve as the Chairman of the Committee.

He assured ASUU that government would implement all the seven demands of the union as contained in the 2009 agreement.

Also speaking, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASUU President, said ASUU would accept the proposal presented by the Federal Government on its demands.
