The National Executive Council (NEC) of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) will hold its meeting overnight in Abuja.
The meeting was convened to allow ASUU’s leadership take the final decision on the protracted strike.
Speaking with Punch, a top source said, “We will have a meeting today and it will last overnight so that we will be given enough time to deliberate and make a conclusion.”
When asked if the union will call off the strike, the source declined comments.
ASUU had on Monday, February 14,2022 declared a strike at the University of Lagos. The union had accused the Federal Government of failing to honour some of the agreements reached.
ASUU had demanded for the renegotiation of the ASUU-FG 2009 agreement, release of revitalisation fund for universities, release of earned academic allowances among others.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, dragged the striking lecturers to court over what he tagged as “irreconcilable differences.”
