ASUU puts on hold its eight-month-old industrial action

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

The union decided to suspend the strike during a meeting of its leadership that started last night into the early hours of today.

According to the union, the meeting was called to determine its next line of action after its state branches met over the Court of Appeal ruling last week.

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

Members of the union’s National Executive Committee, which comprises chairmen of the state chapters and members of the national executive, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.

ASUU has been on strike since February fourteen this year.
