The ASUU strike 2013 continues, but the latest update on ASUU Strike reaching us here at www.nigeriaschool.com.ng appears to be good news– as most of the union branches voted in meetings on Monday to end the strike are much more to varsities who voted against it.
The meetings were held across Nigeria following a marathon meeting between union leadership and President Jonathan Goodluck and Goodluck’s team of negotiators.
Based on the results coming out of the branch meetings, it appears that the clear majority of branches voted to end the strike and as usual ‘majority carries the vote’ abi?.
The next meet-up will be the National Executive Council meeting of the branch leaders, on Wednesday, tomorrow, 13th November, 2013 in Kano State.
If the council moves to end the strike then the final step would be meeting with President Jonathan again on Thursday, and then the strike would be finally over.
Some university students are already preparing to return to their respective campuses, reported the Leadership Newspaper, but some Nigeria University students are no longer interested in going back to school this year 😀 (source).
The president spoke at an educational exhibition in Abuja, saying:
“We need therefore to be conscious of the impact on our children, institutions and the country at large, of unnecessary disruptions in our educational institutions. There is therefore the need to emphasize dialogue where conflict or any sort of misunderstanding arose. This is the civilized approach to doing things so as not to have negative effect on society.”
