BREAKING: ASUU Conditionally Calls Off Strike

BREAKING: ASUU Conditionally Calls Off Strike

The Federal Government has come to agreement with the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) on Wednesday to “conditionally” suspend the lingering industrial action that started since March 2020.

He said the suspension of the strike takes effect from Thursday, December 24th, 2020.

ASUU National President, Biodun Ogunyemi made the announcement during a briefing of the union in Abuja, explaining that the development followed the agreement reached with the Federal Government and a meeting with its National Executive Council (NEC).

While warning that the union would return to strike without notice if the government fails in meeting its part of the agreement reached with the university lecturers, Ogunyemi noted that the reopening of the schools, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, lies with the Federal Government and senate of the universities.

Professor Ogunyemi thanked students and their parents for their understanding throughout the nine-month period and said: “no amount of sacrifice would be too much to get the matter resolved as long as the government is consistent with its commitments.”
