The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) on Wednesday urged the Federal Government to implement the 2009 agreement with the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to end the protracted strike by the union.

This is contained in a statement signed by CNPP's National Publicity Secretary, Mr Osita Okechukwu, a copy of which was made available to newsmen in Abuja.

It said, 'CNPP is appalled with the statement from the Presidency to the effect that they are re-negotiating the 2009 agreement captured in the 2012 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) instead of implementing the agreement with ASUU

'It was unfortunate that the Minister of Labour, Emeka Wogu, had said that the 2009 agreement predates the present administration and some items needed to be re-negotiated if it is to be satisfactorily implemented.

'CNPP is of the candid view that government is a continuum.
