The Academic Staff Union of the University (ASUU) has conditionally suspended its eight-month-old industrial action, a member of the union’s National Executive Committee told Channels TV early Friday.
The union decided to suspend the strike during a meeting of its leadership that began Thursday evening and continued into the early hours of Friday morning.
The meeting was called by the union to determine its next course of action after its state branches met last week over the appeal court ruling.
The Court of Appeal ordered ASUU to suspend the strike before hearing its appeal against the decision ordering lecturers to resume work.
Members of the union’s national executive committee, comprising the state chapter chairmen and members of the national executive, attended the meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja.
ASUU has been on strike since February 14 this year.
