ASUU finally calls off its strike.


ASUU finally calls off its strike.
The strike that the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) began on February 14, 2022, has finally been called off.

After lengthy negotiations with the government, particularly those facilitated by the House of Representatives' Speaker, the Honorable Femi Gbajabiamila, the union called an end to the strike.

ASUU held a protracted meeting after speaking with the National Assembly's lower chamber, according to INFOGONG.

Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) President Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke has stated following discussions that the union could end its strike in a few days.

"We will put a stop to this strike in a few days. So that every Nigerian may be proud that we have universities to be proud of, let's finish this thing off beautifully by working together and with the members of the House of Representatives.

"We also thank the President for becoming involved in the ASUU strike. And I want to make a plea that going forward, we shouldn't let the strike drag on. Strikes shouldn't last longer than two days; if the National Assembly hadn't intervened the way it did, if we had gone on strike sooner, or if those in charge of labor and education had acted exactly as they did, we wouldn't have gone more than two or three weeks.

The United States and the United Kingdom are both on strike, but they are prevented from continuing. We hope that by working together over the next few days, we can put an end to this specific controversy in the Nigerian educational system, so once again, thank you very much," Osodeke had stated.

ASUU has not yet made the decision to end the strike public, but a UNILAG union member verified it to INFOGONG early on Friday.
