ASUU suspends strike after eight months


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old strike, a source in the union has said.

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.

Speaking with our correspondent, 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 decision to suspend the strike followed a ruling by the Appeal Court in Abuja that the union should obey the order to return to classes by the National Industrial Court before it can file an appeal against it.
