ASUU NEC set to meet on Thursday to discuss suspension of strike

The leadership of the striking Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will convene a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting tomorrow (Thursday) to review recent developments, especially the positive response from the federal government to its demands.

In preparation for the meeting expected to hold in Abuja, the union has directed its zonal branches to collate the views of members through vote during the meetings expected to hold tomorrow in its various zones across the country.

The outcome of the meeting would result in suspension of the strike either late Thursday or Friday morning.

This came as reports emerged in the social media space yesterday that the union had called off the almost eight-month strike and subsequently directed its members to resume academic activities on October 17.

ASUU president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, who reacted to the enquiries to that effect, dismissed the report, saying the strike was yet to be suspended.He, however, said the union was working towards the suspension of the action, saying it would be dependent on the views of members from the zonal meetings.

The latest action of the lecturers followed the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, who on Monday, after a meeting with ASUU president and other members, said the strike would be suspended very soon.
