The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday suspended the strike it started three months ago.
Addressing the press last night, ASUU president Prof Biodun Ogunyemi said the strike was suspended following a careful review of the report of engagements with the Federal Government on proposals for addressing all outstanding in the 2013 MoU and MoA.
He said, “NEC resolved that the current strike action by the union should be suspended conditionally with effect from 12.01a.m on Friday 8th February 2019.”
He however warned that should government fail to fulfil its part of the agreement as reflected in the 2019 Memorandum of Action, the union will resume its suspended strike as the union deems necessary.
He enjoined both federal and state government to play the roles expected of them in order to make the new memorandum work.
