The strike embarked by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Asuu is finally over! As widely expected, the Unionist on Monday afternoon called off its almost 6-months-old strike after exhaustive deliberations during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, the Niger State capital.
A source at the Presidency in Abuja said government had been made aware of the happy development. “Since Christmas is already on the way, we believe most schools may wait till January before resuming,”.
The Minna meeting was called to ratify the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed last Wednesday between the ASUU leadership and the Federal Government.
The meeting was called in keeping with the promise of ASUU President, Dr. Nasir Isa Fagge, who said shortly after the signing of the Mou in Abuja that the union would meet within a week to decide on whether to call off the strike which has crippled the country’s public universities since 1st July, 2013.
So Relax and Enjoy the Christmas Festive period guys and gals, but prepare to resume school next year(January, 2014). Any Universities who decides to resume this December is OYO (On Your Own or better still, On Their Own) 😀
Oh, by the way, we heard the Lecturers are not eager to return to class until they are paid their almost six-months salaries.
Merry Christmas to all Nigeriaschool.com.ng friends and visitors and a HAPPY NEW Year – all in Advance!
