ASUU To Suspend Strike After Closed Door Meeting With FG

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) says it has agreed to consider the federal government’s offer and suspend their strike. The conclusion was drawn  after 12 hours, 30 minutes of a closed door meeting between ASUU and a government delegation in Abuja which started 1:38pm on Thursday, September 7 and ended 2:15 a.m. on Friday, September 8.

According to PT, the leadership of ASUU, however, reiterated though it accepted the proposal presented by the government, it will take the proposal to its members and give the feedback to the government within a week. The national president , Biodun Ogunyemi, told journalists after the meeting that the union will come back after one week to take its final decisions.
In his words:
"Now we have some concrete proposal that we will take back to our members for consideration."
the minister of education, adamu sdamu, said ASUU’s demands have been addressed and the union will get back to the government in a week after consulting with its principals.
Recall that the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities (SSANU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) and the National Association of Academic Technologists, (NAAT), announced their interest in joining the ASUU strike on Wednesday, September 6.

The president of SSANU, who is also the chairman of JAC while speaking at a press conference in Abuja gave reasons for the industrial action, saying the nationwide strike would be total and comprehensive.
