ASUU May Call Off Strike Anytime Soon - University Don

Share This

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has informed Amebo Newspapers NG that its current strike may be called off soon. The striking lecturers are considering suspending their three-month strike, according to a member of the union who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity.

He believes the suspension will be lifted after three months, and that talks with the federal government will continue during that time. He predicted that if the government did not meet ASUU’s demands within three months, the union would go on strike indefinitely. This comes just hours after President Muhammadu Buhari urged the union to consider the students’ suffering and end the strike.

The union began a warning strike on February 14 in response to the federal government’s failure to meet its demands and implement previous agreements between the two parties. The strike was extended for another 12 weeks on Monday, May 9, and is expected to end on August 9.
