ASUU President, Emmanuel Osodeke

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) may call off its ongoing industrial action sooner than later.

The striking lecturers are said to be currently considering suspending the three months strike, according to the Daily Post quoting an anonymous member of the union.

The ASUU source was quoted to have said that the suspension may last for just three months, saying that negotiations with the Federal Government would continue during the grace period.

According to him, the failure of the government to meet the demands of ASUU within three months would lead to an indefinite strike.

This is coming a few hours after President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to the union to consider the suffering of students and call off the strike.

ASUU you would recall commenced a warning strike on February 14 over the inability of the Federal Government to meet its demands and implement some agreements the two parties entered into previously.

The union on Monday, May 9, extended the industrial action by another 12 weeks, which is expected to elapse on August 9.
