After the long industrial action, ASUU finally Suspends Nationwide Strike
ASUU has suspended its nationwide strike, after three months of industrial action.
THE Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has called off the strike it embarked upon in November 2018.
According to Channels TV,, the National President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, announced this on Thursday during a press briefing at the Nigeria Labour Congress complex in Abuja.
The striking lecturers took the decision after a meeting with representatives of the Federal Government led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige.
TVC has earlier reported that, the federal government and the striking University teachers have finally signed an agreement, raising hope of an end to the three months old strike. The meeting came hours before Professor Ogunyemi announced the decision of ASUU to suspend the strike.
“While announcing the suspension of the nationwide action, however, our union made it categorically clear that ASUU will not hesitate to review its position should government renege on the signed Memorandum of Action. “Predictably, Government implemented the MoA in the breach, thereby forcing ASUU to resume the suspended strike action.
Comrades and compatriots, as we have always argued, the last thing ASUU members love doing is to cause disruption in smooth intellectual engagements with colleagues, friends and students right on our university.
