There is a report going on via social media that the Academic Staff Union Of Nigerian Universities (ASUU) has called off its strike and asked lecturers of various institutions in Nigeria to resume by a website known as Nigeria Monitor.
While we did a check, and put calls through to various relevant stakeholders and media platform, we were not able to get the source of the information currently flying around.
As at the time of filling this report, the said news has no authenticity whatsoever and as such should be disregarded.
ASUU has not called off its strike till date and has not given any update to suggest such.
Though the National University Commission (NUC) has asked various schools to gear up for full resumption, that is the latest update as at now.
The news making the rounds reads;
”The strike is finally over! As widely expected, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) yesterday called off its almost six months-old strike after exhaustive deliberations during its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, the Niger State capital.
A source at the Presidency in Abuja said government had been made aware of the happy development. “Since Christmas is already on the way, we believe most schools may wait till January before resuming,”.
The Minna meeting was called to ratify the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed last Wednesday between the ASUU leadership and the Federal Government.
The meeting was called in keeping with the promise of ASUU President, Dr. Nasir Isa Fagge, who said shortly after the signing of the MOU in Abuja that the union would meet within a week to decide on whether to call off the strike which has crippled the country’s public universities since July 1.”
Please note that the above report is not verified and should be taken with a pinch of salt.
When ASUU calls off it’s Nation Wide strike, we will update you.
