Strike: ASUU to hold emergency meeting on Thursday 


By Ismail Auwal

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU)  is set to convene an emergency National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Thursday.

In the meeting, the union will discuss recent strikes-related developments, particularly the Federal Government’s accommodative response to its demands.

The union’s seven-month strike is expected to be suspended as a result of the meeting late on Thursday or early on Friday.

ASUU leadership on Tuesday instructed its zonal branches to compile member opinions through voting during the meetings scheduled to take place tomorrow in its various zones across the nation as a prelude to the meeting anticipated to take place at its headquarters in Abuja.

The latest action of the lecturers union came following the intervention of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila.

SAHELIAN TIMES reported that the speaker after a meeting with the ASUU president and other members on Monday assured that the strike would be suspended very soon, saying his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari over the union’s action was fruitful.
