Breaking: ASUU ends 9months strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has ended 9months strike action which the union embarked on since March this year.

ASUU National President, Biodun Ogunyemi, who announced this on Wednesday, during a briefing of the union in Abuja, stated the suspension takes effect from Thursday, December 24th, 2020.

It was earlier reported that the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Tuesday, assured Nigerians that the prolonged strike by the varsity lecturers would be called off before January 15.

The chairman said the lecturers sympathised with students who were also their children, adding that “no amount of sacrifice would be too much to get the matter resolved as long as the government is consistent with its commitments.”

He also warned that the union would return to strike without notice if the government fails in meeting its part of the agreement reached with the university lecturers, adding that the reopening of the schools, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, now lies with the Federal Government and Senate.
