The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) on Thursday night suspended the strike it embarked upon three months ago.
Speaking with journalists on Thursday night, ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, said the strike was suspended following a careful review of the report of its engagements with the Federal Government on proposals for addressing all outstanding issues in the 2013 MoU and MoA.
“NEC resolved that the current strike action by the union should be suspended conditionally with efeect from 12.01 am on Friday, 8th February, 2019.”
He, however, warned that should the government fail to fulfill its part of the agreement as reflected in the 2019 Memorandum of Action, the union would resume its suspended strike as the union deems necessary.
Ogunyemi enjoined both the Federal and state governments to play the roles expected of them in order to make the new memorandum work.
He commended the Federal Government for facilitating the release of the final letter of approval for the granting of operational licence to the Nigerian Universities Pension Company and decision to commence visitation to all federal universities by March 11.
