The Academic Staff Union of Universities on Tuesday confirmed that it had ended its one week nationwide warning strike over the non-implementation of its 2009 agreement with the Federal Government. The President of ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who said this in Abuja, urged lecturers to return back to their classrooms.
“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 hopeful of a positive outcome going by the response coming from the Federal Government.
