After late night talks on Sunday night, the labor unions agreed with Goodluck Jonathan's offer of 97 naira per liter for fuel. Click here to read an article about the ending of the strike.  Although when they accepted the offer the unions added that the president made a "unilateral decision". But for all practical purposes, the strike is over and Guy is resuming his work at his office today.  The schools will reopen tomorrow as a safety precaution to make sure roads are safe.  The strike involved more groups than just the labor unions and school officials want to make sure that other groups are not going to protest the outcome of the strike.  (Many groups wanted the price to be put back at 65 naira per liter.)  So, is it a victory for the labor unions or a victory for Goodluck Jonathan?  I don't really know.  What I do know is that tomorrow for the first time time in 10 days, I get to leave the compound!!!:)
