ASUU finally suspends 9 months old strike

The academic staff union of Universities (ASUU) has just suspended their 9 months old strike which was initially due to the change in payment system by the federal government.

The union announced the suspension of the 9-month old industrial action at a press conference held Wednesday morning in Abuja.

ASUU President, Professor Biodun Ogunyemi, who led other National Executive Committee of the union to the event where he made the announcement, explained that the suspension takes effect from today, Wednesday 23, 2020

The decision to suspend the action, according to Ogunyemi, followed the resolution to that effect by NEC at its meeting held earlier.

Following earlier reports it has been said that the federal government has begun payments of arrears of salaries since March through the old payment system. 

When would public school resume? 

Universities hasn't decided yet on resumption dates, some states have started shutting down schools following the second phase of covid 19 lockdown.
