BREAKING: ASUU suspends 8-month old Strike, announces immediate resumption of Academic activities

ASUU Suspends Strike

THE Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has finally suspended its strike.

The union announced the suspension of the 8-month old industrial action at the National Executive Council meeting held on Thursday, 13th October, 2022.

ASUU President, Professor Emmanuel Osodeke, who led other National Executive Committee of the union to the event where he made the announcement, explained that the suspension takes effect from Friday, 14th October, 2022.

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.

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.

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.

Members of the union’s National Executive Committee, which comprises the 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 14 this year.
