The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has agreed to suspend its more than eight-month-old strike which began on February 14, 2022
Although ASUU has not yet made a formal pronouncement, it was gathered that the decision was taken at the national executive council meeting of the union held in Abuja early Friday (today).
The meeting was called by the union to determine its next line of action after its state branches met over the Court of Appeal ruling last week.
Recall that the Court of Appeal had ordered the union to suspend the strike before its appeal of the ruling ordering lecturers to resume work can be heard.
Members of the union’s NEC, which comprises the chairmen of the state chapters and members of the national executive, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.
