The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has announced a conditional suspension of it nationwide industrial action.
ASUU’s decision followed a reconciliation meeting with a Federal Government team which held today (Monday) in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, who made the announcement, explained that the suspension was conditional, as it depends on whether the Federal Government would fufil its parts of the agreements.
Today’s dialogue came after about two weeks following the union’s consultations with its various chapters on the terms of agreement earlier reached by both parties.
ASUU had been on strike since August 14, over unpaid arrears and demands for improved infrastructure in the universities.
A reconciliation meeting with the Federal Government on August 17 had failed to resolve the dispute, but fresh undisclosed offers were made to the lecturers.
