Eight Months After ASUU Suspend Strike

The eight month lingering industrial action of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has been suspended.

A member of the union’s National Executive Committee (NEC) confirmed the development to Channels TV in the early hours of Friday.

ASUU decided to suspend the strike after members of the union’s NEC met on Thursday night and into the early hours of Friday.

The meeting was attended by the Chairman of the state chapters and members of the national executive at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.

The union had fixed the meeting to decide the next line of action after the Court of Appeal directed it members to resume last week.

Recall that the Court of Appeal ordered ASUU to suspend the strike before its appeal of the ruling ordering lecturers to resume work can be heard.

ASUU has been granted leave to appeal the decision of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria delivered on the 21st of September by the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.

Recall that Justice Polycarp Hamman of the National Industrial Court directed ASUU to return to classrooms after eight months of Strike.

ASUU which was not pleased with the ruling had on the 28th of September applied to the Court of Appeal to grant it leave to appeal against the interlocutory order of Justice Polycarp Hamman.

Recall that the academic union embarked on a strike on Monday, February 14, 2022.
