ASUU Warns FG Against Breach Of Agreement, Suspends Strike

The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has warned the Federal Government to guard against any move that may lead to a breach of agreement as the Union suspends its 9-month old strike.

Both ASUU and the Federal Government met on Wednesday with a view to ending the Union’s protracted strike action that started since March 2020. The Union insists on resuming the suspended industrial strike if the government fails to deliver promises to its requests.

The National President of ASUU, Biodun Ogunyemi sounded the warning during a briefing of the union in Abuja, explaining that the development followed the agreement reached with the Federal Government and a meeting with its National Executive Council (NEC).

According to him, the union would return to strike without notice if the government fails in meeting its part of the agreement reached with the university lecturers.

Ogunyemi noted that the reopening of the schools, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, lies with the Federal Government and senate of the universities.

He said the suspension of the strike takes effect from Thursday, December 24th, 2020.

Professor Ogunyemi thanked students and their parents for their understanding throughout the nine months. “No amount of sacrifice would be too much to get the matter resolved as long as the government is consistent with its commitments, ” Ogunyemi said.
