The Academic Staff Union of Universities has announced a “conditional suspension” of its strike.
The ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, stated this at a briefing at the Nigeria Labour Congress secretariat.
Ogunyemi said the strike was suspended after the union gave the Federal Government a deadline of the end of October to fulfill its promises.
He said, “After an elaborate and extensive consultation process, the National Executive Council of ASUU has agreed to conditionally suspend the ongoing strike action.
“So, all members of ASUU are to resume work after their branch congresses on Tuesday, September 19.
The Union however, said it will not hesitate to review its position, should the government renege on its Memorandum of Association, which was signed by both parties.
