ASUU Strike: 60 percent of Lecturers Vote to End Industrial Action At NEC Meeting in Kano,

As more and more Universities itch to end the ongoing strike by Nigerian lecturers, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) rose from a two-day National Executive Council (NEC) Meeting on Saturday in Kano with a resolve to keep mum until it met with President Goodluck Jonathan.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the meeting was held at an undisclosed venue, away from the ASUU secretariat.

However, a reliable source in the association who spoke with NAN on Saturday, in Kano, said: “ASUU has decided to meet with President Jonathan before making whatever decision they took during the meeting public.’’

The source added that 60 per cent of the members wanted the strike called off while the remaining 40 per cent wanted it to continue.

The NEC deliberated on the report from each university on whether or not they should accept the federal government’s offer.

ASUU has been on strike since July 1 and the NEC meeting was to deliberate on the resolutions of various chapters of ASUU on whether the strike should be suspended or not.
