Education Minister, Adamu Adamu says the strike embarked upon by the Academic Staff Union of Universities may end this week.
The minister disclosed this during a briefing with reporters on the proliferation of illegal institutions in the country, at the weekend in Abuja.
ASUU has been on strike since November 4th, 2018.
But ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi said the union was still consulting on whether to end the strike or not.
According to him, the union wants to take stock of what government has promised.
On whether the universities have accessed the N15.89 billion released by the federal government, he said they are cross-checking with the concerned universities and until such confirmation, he was not in a position to state otherwise.
