ASUU Ends Warning Strike, Orders Lecturers Back To Class
The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday confirmed that it had ended its one week nationwide warning strike over the non-implementation of a 2009 agreement with the Federal Government.
The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who said this in Abuja, urged lecturers to return to work.
“We are making progress, especially with the intervention of the Senate. In the next one or two meetings, if we are able to get a clear path to the matter, we will avoid elongation of the strike action.
“I have been receiving these reports that ASUU says strike continues. No. The strike ends today (Tuesday). All lecturers are to go back to work Wednesday morning.”
According to him, ASUU was hopeful of a positive outcome, going by the response coming from the Federal Government.
