The Academic Staff Union of Universities has postponed its decision on strike, saying that consultations are still ongoing.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the union after its National Executive Council meeting.
The meeting held at its Festus Iyayi National Secretariat, University of Abuja, on Saturday, December 18, 2021 to review the level of government’s implementation of the FGN-ASUU Memorandum of Action of December 23, 2020 and other related matters.
In the press statement titled, ‘Enough of blackmail’, signed by ASUU president, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, the lecturers regretted that the Federal Government had turned its back on the plan to set up an inter-ministerial committee to review the draft Renegotiated 2009 FGN-ASUU Agreement.
Earlier, ASUU had announced plans to embark on a strike over the Federal Government’s failure to meet its demands.
