Assu, Academic Staff Union Of Universities, has called off their strike, following their Latest interaction with Nigeria Federal Government over their needs.

Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) have suspended their over a month old strike action.  You should be aware that the lecturers proceeded on a strike on August 14th.

Nigeria Academic Staff Union of Universities popularly known as (ASUU) has suspended the strike action which started August 14th, 2017. The reason why they commence the strike was because of the federal government’s failure to do the following;

  • implement its 2009 agreement and 2013 memorandum of understanding (MoU),
  • Non-payment of salaries,
  • Non-payment of earned academic allowance (EAA),
  • Removal of universities staff schools from funding by government
  • Non-implementation of provisions of the 2014 pension reform act with respect to retired professors and their salaries.

Announcing the suspension of this current strike, the President of the union, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, said the strike would be suspended until the end of October 2017, which will give the government ample time to fulfill all the promises it had made to the association.

According to their Chief Spokesman, The ASUU Chief representative, and all lecturers and students in Universities across the country are to resume full academic activities with immediate effect.

This decision to suspend the asuu strike was made just some few minutes ago when all stakeholders in the ASUU body agreed on the offer the Nigeria Federal Government has made.

Though details of the said offer has not been disclose by the ASUU body yet, it can be concluded that indeed not all ASUU demands have been met by Federal Government.

While thanking the general public, students and parents for their understanding, ASUU has insisted that they will not relent on her efforts to rescue the educational system by pressing home the demands necessary at all times.

Well,Since ASUU demands have not been met totally by the Federal Government, this disturbing question remains;

will ASUU strike Continues?

this question remains within our heart and soul, hope this asuu strike is over for Good.
