The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, National Executive Council, weekend, met in Kano.
The secret meeting,Vanguard gathered lasted from Friday night to Saturday morning.
However, at the end of the meeting, lecturers were not forthcoming with the outcome, which sources say was borne out of the promise made to President Goodluck Jonathan by the union to inform him of its decision before going public.
It was learnt that the NEC meeting which attracted ‘fair representation’ from over 50 Universities was held at Mambayya House. Vanguard gathered lecturers were divided on the issue of suspension of the over 5months strike.
The Universities lecturers were conveyed to the venue of the secret meeting in two Coaster buses, secured by the union’s Kano chapter, in order to avoid the attention of the press and public.
A competent source close to ASUU told Vanguard in Kano that “we still have 40 – 60 percent situations here after the meeting; the resolution from the north favours the call off while their peers from the South strongly support the continuation of the strike”.
