ASUU set to end strike as governing council, vice chancellors meet

There are indications that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), may soon call off their seven-month old strike.

This is because an emergency meeting between ASUU, the governing council of Universities and the Vice Chancelors will be held.

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday September 14, 2022.

The ongoing strike by lecturers in public universities, which began on 14 February, took a turn for the worse when ASUU declared it total and indefinite on 29 August.

A series of meetings between the Union and the Federal Government to resolve the impasse had always ended in a fiasco largely because sincerity and realism did not underpin those engagements.

Meanwhile university students on Tuesday blocked the inbound and outbound sections of Lagos-Ibadan expressway in protest over the ASUU strike.

The protest was staged in the Mowe area by the students under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS).

Addressing reporters during the protest, members of the association said the protest has become imperative in order to press home their demand for immediate resolution of the face-off between ASUU and the Federal Government.
