ASUU suspends three-month-old strike, asks lecturers to resume Friday

8 February 2019 National


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday suspended its three-month old strike following an agreement the academic body reached with the Federal Government.

It, however, warned that the suspension was not an outright call-off and that if government reneged on their memorandum of agreement, the body would embark on another industrial action with full force.

According to reports, lecturers have also been asked to resume on Friday.

The information was contained on ASUU’s Twitter handle, @ASUUNGR on Thursday evening:

 

 

The strike was called off after a meeting with the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige.

Ngige said after the meeting that eight areas of disagreements were discussed and agreed upon by the two parties, while expressing gratitude to ASUU leadership for their understanding.

ASUU president, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said lecturers are to resume on Friday, February 8, 2019.
