At last, ASUU suspends strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), has suspended its over 5months strike.

ASUU President, Dr. Nasir Fagge disclosed this in Minna while briefing newsmen.

The Union suspended the strike after a marathon National Executive Committee meeting held in the Niger State capital, yesterday.

The different chapters of ASUU are expected to hold congress meetings on Wednesday, following which academic activities  will resume in the universities.

The marathon NEC meeting was held to deliberate over the agreement signed Wednesday, last week, by the union executives and the federal government.

The meeting, Vanguard gathered was attended by ASUU branch chairmen and secretaries, the national executive members of the Union, coordinators and past leaders, including members from 52 universities.

Public universities lecturers have been on strike since July 1, 2013.
