According to a member of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) National Executive Committee, the union has temporarily halted its eight-month-old industrial action.
During a leadership meeting that began on Thursday night and went into the early hours of Friday, the union made the decision to call off the strike.
The union scheduled the conference after its state chapters last week discussed the Court of Appeal verdict in order to decide its course of action.
Before hearing ASUU’s appeal of the decision directing professors to return work, the Court of Appeal had ordered them to call off their strike.
The meeting at the ASUU National Secretariat in Abuja was attended by members of the union’s National Leadership Committee, which is made up of the leaders of the state chapters and the national executive.
Since this year’s Valentine’s Day, the ASUU has been on strike.
