Barring a last-minute change, the National Executive Committee of ASUU will at its meeting on Wednesday night suspend the lingering ASUU strike to allow public university students to return to their classes as reports from the various local congresses of the union today has shown.
We gathered that at the University (UNILAG),members of ASUU in the University who have been front-liners in the industrial action today accepted the new offer from the FG and voted that the strike be suspend.
Other Universities that have so far voted for the suspension of the industrial action are Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Uthman Dan Fodio University Sokoto, Federal University of Technology MINNA, and the University of Lagos. Others are, the University of Calabar, Federal University of Technology Akure, and Ekiti State University.
As of Press time, only the University of Benin has refused to yield to the call that the 4-month old ASUU strike be suspended.
It will be recall the the Academic Staff Union of Nigeria Universities (ASUU) has on 1 July, 2013 embarked on an indefinite strike to put pressure on the FG to implement the 2009 agreement it entered into with the Union.
