continue or not.

NAIJ.com gathered that all branch chairmen are

expected to be in Abuja on Thursday August 24 while the

meeting is tentatively expected to end on Saturday

August 26, after which a decision will be communicated

to Nigerians.

According to PM News, “When contacted on the planned

meeting, the ASUU President, Biodun Ogunyemi, said he

would only speak after the meeting had been held.

“We cannot react now but after the NEC meeting, we will

speak on the developments. Several branch chairmen and

officials spoken to decline to provide information on the

decision of their branches on the strike, saying they had

been asked not to speak to journalists.

“We held special congresses today. I cannot divulge

outcome of the meeting but we held a meeting on the

strike action,” Tomi Damson, secretary of Lagos State

University branch of ASUU said.

The chairman of another branch of the union in a

southern university also spoke on the interim report

received from the branches.

“From the Southern part of the country and some parts of

the North, universities voted for continuation of the strike;

but we cannot tell now until after the meeting of NEC,”

the don said.

The union went on strike on August 13 to protest against

poor welfare and poor funding of universities, a move

that led to the Federal Government inviting the body for

negotiations. ASUU then sent the details of the

negotiation to its branches for further deliberation.

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu had expressed

hope that the strike would be suspended this week.
