ASUU Suspends Strike Conditionally

The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old industrial action conditionally.

This was confirmed by a member of the Union’s National Executive Committee.

When pressed further for an official statement, the source, said the Union’s President, Emmanuel Sodeke will release an official statement later on Friday.

The union decided to suspend the strike during a National Executive Committee that commenced from Thursday night into the early hours of Friday.

It was gathered that majority of the campus congresses had voted to suspend the strike conditionally in view of the Court of Appeal ruling last week.

The Court of Appeal had ordered ASUU to suspend the strike before its appeal of the ruling ordering lecturers to resume work can be heard.

ASUU has been on strike since February 14 this year.
