The Academic Staff Union of Universities, today, says all the branches, which are over 70, will participate in the decision to either call – off the strike or not.
ASUU President, Prof Ogunyemi in an interview with newsmen on Saturday said: “We are consulting with our organs. When we have new information we will share it.
“We are reporting back to the government on Friday. That is when the consultation will end.”
Asked if the union would call off the strike before Friday’s meeting, Ogunyemi said:
“I don’t have the power to suspend the strike.”
The Federal Government yesterday agreed to ASUU’s demand to pay their members’ salary arrears from February to June through the old salary payment platform, pending when the university lecturers will complete the development of its own payment platform- the University Transparency and Accountability Solution (UTAS).
Expectations are on the high side the Union might finally suspend the prolonged strike next week.
