The Lecturers Sympathised With Students Who Were Also Their Children, ASUU Said After Suspending It’s 9 Months Strike

The Academic Staff Union of University has suspended its strike after nine months of industrial action.

The ASUU leader Biodun Ogunyemi, made the announcement during a briefing of the union in Abuja on Wednesday.

Ogunyemi also said the lecturers sympathised with students who were also their children, adding that “no amount of sacrifice would be too much to get the matter resolved as long as the government is consistent with its commitments.”

While warning that the union would return to strike without notice if the government fails in meeting its part of the agreement reached with the university lecturers, Ogunyemi noted that the reopening of the schools, considering the COVID-19 pandemic, lies with the Federal Government and Senate.
