The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has in a statement announced its decision to postpone the strike action scheduled for this month. The union says that it is in consultation with its members across the federation.
Why it matters.
ASUU has claimed that the Federal Government has faulted its agreement deal, which led to the suspension of its strike action in 2020. Following that, the union threatened to strike if the Federal Government didn’t attend to its demands after the 21 days deadline it set.
On Saturday 18th December, the union announced in a statement after its National Executive Council meeting that although the FG hasn’t met all its issues in the “2009 FGN-ASUU agreement”, it wouldn’t be continuing with the strike action.
It said, “NEC resolved to review the situation at a later date with a view to deciding on the next line of action.”
