ASUU strike update today on Resumption and asuu strike update 2022 called off.
Ejes Gist Newspaper can authoritatively report that the over eight months old ASUU Strike has been called off.
The country’s public university lecturers have halted their eight-month strike in order to make their demands to the federal government known.
This amazing news comes after the NEC meeting of the union. Although, the decision, which has not yet been publicly announced, was made Friday morning in Abuja at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the lecturers’ union, which operates under the auspices of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The strike was, however, provisionally suspended, according to a source at the meeting, which was conducted at the ASUU national secretariat, which is housed on the grounds of the University of Abuja.
All states and zonal branch executives of the union were present for the meeting, which started on Thursday evening and went into Friday morning.
The union’s meeting was held to evaluate recent developments, particularly the Court of Appeal’s ruling that it obey the National Industrial Court of Nigeria’s (NICN) earlier order by pausing the industrial action while it appeals the trial court’s decision.
Recall that on February 14, 2022, the union began its strike in an effort to make its demands known to the federal government.
The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, president, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, is anticipated to make an official announcement to the public this morning.
However, ASUU has said voting will be held today to finalise the resumption date and make it official to the public.

He predicted that the strike would be resolved outside of the courtroom.
In his response to the appeal court’s order that lecturers at public institutions should resume their positions in classrooms, he offered a cryptic suggestion that the industrial action will be resolved outside of the confines of the courtroom.
Recall that Since the 14th of February, the federal government and ASUU have been at odds over ASUU’s demands for proper funding of the university educational system to a standard comparable to that of the rest of the world.
Ejes Gist Newspaper had earlier reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja had ordered both Attorneys of the FG and ASUU to meet and discuss in an out-of-court settlement but it was a deadlock as both parties failed to reach a conclusion.
In the interest of the nation and the country’s undergraduates, the appeal court ruled that the union follow the rulings of the lower court (NICN) Which ordered the union to end its strike.
It argued that students at public universities who cannot afford to attend private higher schools suffered as a result of the strike action.
However, the Union has stated that it is still making consultations on its next move.
