Universities in Nigeria to open soon as ASUU finally calls-off strike

On Wednesday the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, finally called off its industrial action.

Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, the ASUU Chairman, made this known during a press briefing on Wednesday, after the union’s ongoing negotiation with the Federal Government.

Recall that ASUU had been on strike for about nine months.

The prolonged strike was due to government’s alleged delay in meeting the agreements reached with the union.

The current strike by ASUU was commenced in March, 2019.

“We are going back to strive for our students to excel. We are returning to classes and appeal to parents to work with us for the revitalization of universities,” the ASUU Chairman said.
