The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has asked her members to resume duty after being away on a 36 days old strike. The union had suspended academic activities in all the nation tertiary institutions since 13th August over a none settlement of alledge famed 2009 agreement with the federal government.
The Federal Government however had engaged the union early in meetings and consultations, led by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, and the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu. ASUU’s team led by Prof Biodun Ogunyemi has appeared largely cooperative throughout the five-week period. Some meetings ended deadlocked but it did not prevent both parties from returning to the negotiating table.
ASUU has now chosen to suspend the strike after meeting again with the FG’s team on Monday, 18th September, directing that lecturers reopen the classrooms and continue from where they stopped before the strike.
