ASUU calls off strike

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) made it known o Tuesday, that the one week nationwide warning
strike over the non-implementation of its 2009 agreement
with the Federal Government has ended.

Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, ASSU president, while saying this
in Abuja, urged lecturers to return back to work.

He said
“We are making progress especially with the intervention of
the Senate and in the next one or two meetings, if we are
able to get a clear path to the matter, we will avoid the
elongation of the strike.

“I have been receiving these reports that ASUU says strike
continues, no, the strike ends today (Tuesday). All lecturers
are to go back to work on Wednesday morning.”

Ogunyemi said ASUU was being hopeful of a positive outcome,
going by the response coming from the Federal Government.
