The Academic Staff Union of Universities‘ National Executive Council on the 28th of August, 2022 (Sunday) would decide on its lingering industrial action.
A source that spoke with Punch on the development said the meeting will be held at the union’s national headquarters at the University of Abuja.
The council members are expected to act based on the reports submitted by various chapters of the union.
ASUU has been on strike since the 14th of February, 2022.
The union had demanded the renegotiation of the ASUU-FGN 2009 agreement; release of revitalisation funds for universities; deployment of the University Transparency Accountability System for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers; release of earned allowances; and the release of the white paper report of the visitation panels to universities.
The source, while speaking on the forthcoming meeting, said, “The NEC meeting will hold on August 28, the four weeks ultimatum that we gave is expiring that same day. We will be making our decisions based on the results of the state congresses.
“The NEC has to depend on the result of the congresses. The zones have held their congresses; the branch chairmen will also talk to their members and they will get feedback which will be transmitted to the NEC.”
