The Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has suspended its eight-month-old industrial action conditionally.
According to Channels TV, a member of the union’s National Executive Committee disclosed this early hour of Friday.
It was gathered that the union suspended the strike during its leadership meeting that started on Thursday night and lasted into the early hours of Friday.
The union’s National Executive Committee, which comprises the chairmen of the state chapters and national executive members, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.
Recall that the Court of Appeal had ordered ASUU to resume before its appeal the ruling of the National Industrial Court of Nigeria.
The union called the meeting to determine its next line of action after its state branches met over the Court of Appeal ruling last week.
ASUU has been on strike since February 14 this year.
