BREAKING: ASUU Suspends Eight Months Strike Conditionally

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old strike conditionally.

According to reports reaching Vanguard, the union ended the strike after a meeting by its leadership on Thursday night, which lasted into the early hours of Friday.

Though the union is yet to make an official pronouncement, our correspondent gathered that the decision was taken at the end of the National Executive Council meeting which was held at the ASUU secretariat in Abuja.

A highly informed source within the NEC said, “Yes, it has been called off”.

When asked for more details, the source said, “The president will release an official circular in the morning”

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.

The Court of Appeal had ordered ASUU to suspend the strike before its appeal of the ruling ordering lecturers to resume work can be heard.

Members of the union’s National Executive Committee, which comprises the chairmen of the state chapters and members of the national executive, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.

Recall that ASUU commenced the strike on Monday, February 14, 2022.
