The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has temporarily halted its eight-month-long strike. The ASUU has been on strike since February 14 of this year.
During a meeting of its leadership on Thursday night that lasted into the early hours of Friday, ASUU decided to suspend the strike. Members of the union's National Executive Committee, which includes state chapter chairmen and national executive members, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.
The meeting was called by ASSU to determine its next course of action following a meeting of its state branches over last Friday's Court of Appeal ruling, which ordered the union to suspend the strike and ordered lecturers to return to work last week.
At the time of writing, ASUU had not yet issued an official statement regarding the suspension of the eight-month-long strike.
