The 8-month-old strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has been suspended.

As a result of that, students in all 36 states of Nigeria can now resume their studies.

The decision was made by the union at the conclusion of the National Executive Council meeting, which took place at the ASUU secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, October 13, until early Friday, October 14.

The union scheduled the conference after its state chapters last week and discussed the Court of Appeal verdict in order to decide its course of action.

In order for ASUU’s appeal of the decision requiring professors to resume work to be considered, the Court had ordered ASUU to halt the strike.

Since this year’s Valentine’s Day, the ASUU has been on strike.

Why ASUU Went On Strike

The lecturers’ strike, which was initially scheduled to last four weeks, was called by ASUU, which claimed it was in support of better university financing and improved welfare for its members as a result of agreements made with the government.

  • ASUU specifically demanded that the monies for school revitalization be released, that members be paid earned academic allowances, and that whitepapers from the presidential inspection committees’ reports be made available.
  • Furthermore, it is requested that university employees use the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS) as their preferred method of payment rather than the Integrated Personnel Payroll Information System (IPPIS).

The union maintained prolonging the industrial action before making it permanent in August as a result of the Federal Government and ASUU’s failure to reach an agreement.

Following the conflict, the Federal Government registered two factional unions: the National Association of Medical and Dental Academics and the Congress of Nigerian University Academics (CONUA) (NAMDA).

However, ASUU had stated that it was unconcerned by the government’s action and had called it “illegal”.
