ASUU Suspends 8-Month-Old Strike, Says Issues Not ‘Satisfactorily Addressed’
Written by City Radio on October 14, 2022
The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old industrial action.
The union decided to suspend the strike during a meeting of its leadership that started on Thursday night and lasted into the early hours of Friday.
In a statement by the president of the union Emmanuel Osodeke, ASUU said the decision followed a series of appeals by Nigerians, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representative Femi Gbajabiamila.
The meeting was called by the union to determine its next line of action after its state branches met over the Court of Appeal ruling last week. ASUU has made a formal announcement about the suspended strike this morning.
