THE Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU,ended its National Executive Committee, NEC meeting late Monday, with a resolution not to embark on another strike action following the payment of half salaries to members by the federal government.
Rather,the union, according to Vanguard source, resolved to wait for the outcome of the intervention of the Speaker, House of Representatives,Femi Gbajabiamila in its faceoff with the government over alleged non implementation of the 2009 agreement by the latter.
Although, no member of the body including the president, Prof.Emmanuel Osodeke,who attended the meeting held at the University of Abuja campus where ASUU’s headquarters is located,has spoken about the outcome, a source said members resolved not to explore the strike option in getting the government address the contending issues.
It was gathered that some members had pushed for declaration of total and comprehensive strike across public universities across the country but majority kicked against the action, saying it was no longer fashionable under the present circumstance.
Those against the strike, argued that it would be wrong to embark on the action again,thus compelling students who have already returned to their various schools following earlier suspension of the action to return home.
