Academic Staff Union of Universities, or ASUU, has suspended it’s eight-month-long strike.
Early Friday morning, a member of the union’s National Executive Committee, NEC, confirmed this to reporters.
ASUU’s leadership decided to suspend the strike during a meeting that began Thursday night and lasted until early Friday morning.
The state branches of the union met last week to discuss the Court of Appeal’s decision, after which members voted to temporarily suspend the strike.
Before ASUU’s appeal of the ruling ordering professors to resume work could be heard, the Court of Appeal had ordered the union to suspend its strike.
At the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja, chairmen of state chapters and members of the national executive attended the National Executive Committee meeting.
Since February 14, 2018, ASUU had been on strike.
