ASUU considers suspending strike after much pressure

Ngige and ASUU

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is considering suspending its ongoing industrial action soon.

A member of the union, who spoke on condition of anonymity with Daily Post, said the striking lecturers might suspend the three-month strike.

According to him, this may last for just three months, saying that negotiations with the Federal Government would continue during the grace period.

He said the failure of the government to meet the demands of ASUU within the three months would lead to an indefinite strike.

This is coming a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to the union to consider the suffering of students and call off the strike.

The union commenced a warning strike on February 14 over the inability of the Federal Government to meet its demands and implement some agreements the two parties entered into previously.

The industrial action was on Monday May 9, extended by another 12 weeks, which is expected to elapse on August 9.
