Why we suspended our 8-month old strike- ASUU
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, has said it called of its eight months old strike due to the order of the Court of Appeal and various appeals by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila and other well meaning Nigerians to it .
To this effect,the lecturers’ union directed members to immediately resume work at their various duty posts with effect from 12 am on Friday, October 14,2022.
The union which made the explanation in a statement released Friday, by its president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, however, regretted that the issues that led to its eight months long action,were yet to be satisfactorily addressed.
It named some of the issued as,”Funding for revitalisation of public universities; Earned Academic Allowances; Proliferation of public Universities; Visitation Panels/Release of White Papers and University Transparency and Accountability Solution,UTAS, as a broad spectrum software to stop illegality and provide for an alternative payment platform in the university system.”
ASUU however, appreciated the commendable efforts of the leadership of the House of Representatives and other patriotic Nigerians who also addressed and appealed on the matter.
